Tieing Roses to the Japanese

This gorgeous new installation was officially opened at the Zilker Botanical Gardens this weekend at the Zilker Garden Festival!

It was created by David Mahler and team of Environmental Survey Consulting, the company my friend and farm-mate Lee works for. I felt proud to be even loosely associated with the group! It ties the zen water quality of the Taniguchi Japanese Garden upstream to the more formal and Western Rose Garden downstream.

Despite having worked on site at the project, Lee had never seen much of the rest of the park, so I took him on a sadly high-speed tour of the unseen bits.

I’m happy to live in a city that prioritizes beautiful public spaces like this one!
