In the garden of Randy Bolin and Tom Nelson in Oakland, California, an anteater munches away amongst the pots on the deck. It’s these little details that make a garden personal and wonderful, as this one most definitely is.

    What is that plant in the upper right-hand corner of the picture? It looks like Audrey from Little Shop of Horrors!
