Let's continue our tour of Irvin & Pauline Faria's autumn garden in Carmichael, California.
"For those who visit the garden it normally takes about 45 minutes to complete the experience of a hide-and-reveal atmosphere as they walk along numerous paths that repeatedly shift direction in a zigzag pattern. Unexpected vistas provide fresh views of familiar features that one might already have seen from other angles. This is the unique quality we attempted to achieve in our stroll-type garden. A bridge crossing a creek leads to a waiting pavilion “Machiai” and sitting bench for visitors can pause and look closely from where they came and whatever is near. Through our garden design we have attempted to satisfy our need to stay in touch and exist in harmony with wild nature. It has been our fortune to have a garden sanctuary set apart form the everyday world."
