foliagefocusfengshuiorwhateveritis, funkyfunctional, exotic hideaway, Portland-hip, xeriscape-y, Feng Shui, Yin and Yang, Asian influenced Oasis on a city lot, from a deep shade garden room, to sunny raised vegetable beds historic, and then... the WEIRD PLANT. Whew.
Bring a snack if you're like us and gardening makes you hungry. Water too.
