Go along with Dave as he visits a Garden Sanctuary for people and birds that thrive around an elegant Singing Tower: Historic Bok Sanctuary. Edward Bok had a vision to create an excellent garden to provide sanctuary from the busy daily world. Even in the late 1930ís and early 1940ís visitors flocked to the new garden and the shining Carillon Tower. Today, the gardens of the Historic Bok Sanctuary and Pinewood Estate are more beautiful than ever and the tower "sings" each day in live concerts performed by the Carillonuers perched high in its 280-foot- tall Art Deco spire.
Then itís off to discover an American Original in Blue, Ceanothus, with David Fross. David Fross is a renowned expert on native and Mediterranean region plants and which ones are perfectly suited for American gardens. He has been observing, collecting and growing Ceanothus for years and has been instrumental in bringing these stunning blooming shrubs to gardens all across the country and the world.
In this episode of Garden Travels, Dave's favorites include: Flowering Almond and Narcissus.
