This bust of James Beard, the man behind everything at the James Beard Foundation, had been languishing sadly on a bench. Now, after the renovation, he occupies a spot of honor, sitting proudly on a stand.
The bed in the back of the garden had steel edgings added, courtesy of Paul Keyes; a small border of dwarf boxwood (Buxus sempervirens 'Suffruticosa'), courtesy of Blue Ridge Boxwoods; some 'Sykes Dwarf' oak-leaf hydrageas, courtesy of Victoria's Nursery, next to the fence; and 'Dragon Wing Red' begonias in the front, surrounding the bust, courtesy of Paul Keyes.
The Leo stone planters, (which have solar-powered LED lights in them!) were donated by Just Terraces, and holds a lush kimberly fern and a border of icky finger coleus, courtesy of Paul Keyes.
