This long and narrow rope bridge spans a wooded ravine at Les Quatre Vents. It may look scary, but it's worth the trip to the middle, where you'll spot another whimsical frog in the foliage below. But the best view is in the other direction....we'll show you that tomorrow!

**All last week and this week, we've been featuring photos of the gardens at Les Quatre Vents, the home of Frank and Anne Cabot in Quebec. If you'd like read more about this garden, check out this interview with Frank Cabot that ran in the April 2005 issue of Fine Gardening. Frank also whote a book about the garden. You can get it on Amazon here.**
