It's only a small parkway plot in front of our studio, but we think of it as a little sanctuary we share with the bee's, hummingbirds, butterflies and all the other creatures that somehow find a way to live and even thrive in this industrial corner of our city.


Peter's Grandfather's brass nozzle and this cast iron rabbit make for a handy sprinkler alternative.

Foxglove for the humming birds.  Believe it or not, we have quite a few.


Early Ukrainian sweet pea transplanted years ago from Peter's Grandma June's garden. It's the most reliable, beautiful, all-summer-into-fall bloomer we've ever planted. The butterflies and bees go crazy for it.


White Climbing Roses add a beautiful scent to our industrial corner. The Weeping Pine was planted a few years back in memory of our cat, Inge.
