JGarden Description:This Frank Lloyd Wright designed house was the home of Maximilian Hoffman. The Japanese-inspired garden was designed by Stephen Morrell, the curator of the John P. Humes Japanese Stroll Garden 




With the south wind a gentle goddess came.
She soaked the bronze, she soaked the fountain,
She soaked the swallow's belly and its feathers of gold.
She hugged the tide, lapped the sand, drank the fish.
Secretly she soaked the temple, the bath-house, the theatre,
The confusion of her platinum lyre --
  the tongue of the goddess -- secretly.
Soaked my tongue.

  Nishiwaki Junzaburô
