This past winter we realized, sadly, that all good things come to an end… Only to be replaced by even better things. And so it is with our iconic Monet bridge in our Woodland Garden. After two decades of wonderful service, allowing safe passage for thousands of people–wedding couples, proposals, romantic walks among the old growth trees….. Our bridge recognized that it was time.
Ryan, who our regular guests know is not only a member of the family but also an amazing keeper of our grounds, carpenter, and Earth Visionary, crafted a new bridge.
While we know that no bridge could ever truly replace the green bridge, our new natural cedar bridge comes in at a tie for first place.
The red rhododendron next to the bridge blossomed with appreciation upon seeing the result. We know you will too!
