A greenhouse stands at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens at Fort Bragg, Calif.
Gardener’s heaven! That’s what I feel when I visit a botanical garden. Last week, we went to the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens at Fort Bragg, Calif. It’s not simply the plants that put me over the top. It’s seeing what’s done with the design: how the textures and shapes go together; how the colors are coordinated for complement and contrast. Then, there’s the hardscape. The amazing structures that are created to bring a garden/landscape together and to help it function effectively always fascinate me.
