Added to JGarden:
5 acres. A tremendous variety of azaleas, daylilies, annuals, and perennials in the midst of hundreds of camellias and Magnolias. Originally a restoration of an historic building by Mynelle Westbrook Hayward as her private garden
Japan a great stone garden in the sea.
Echoes of hoes and weeding,
Centuries of leading hill-creeks down
To ditch and pool in fragile knee deep fields.
Leafy sunshine rustling on a man
Chipping a foot-square rough hinoki beam;
I thought I heard an axe chop in the woods
It broke the dream; and woke up dreaming on a train.
It must have been a thousand years ago
In some old mountain sawmill of Japan.
A horde of excess poets and unwed girls
And I that night prowled Tokyo like a bear
Tracking the human future
Of intelligence and despair.
