Come with me and spend the afternoon in the magical home of Laura Cooper, Nick Taggart, and their lovely daughter Lily. Nick and Laura have created an enchanting garden-world perched on a hillside minutes away from downtown Los Angeles. This is an engulfing, powerful landscape – giant plants clamber over one another; things are allowed to grow out of bounds … everything is very ALIVE. Zoey the dog naps next to chickens, Lily swims with koi, and old friends drop over to chat about garden theory. All in the course of a normal afternoon in this extraordinary place.
I wish everyone who sees this could experience it! Laura’s sensitive hand controls, leads, and gives free reign to the desires of the garden she cares for. Captivating!
Thank you for watching! We’ll be visiting Laura, Nick, and Lily again – there is so much of their world to share! And generously share they do, embodying the spirit of the gardener.
