The garden path in winter.

My favorite garden story is about how this path came to be as it is, and you won't be finding this story on their website!

Somewhere along the line, well into the process I understand, some government inspector told Robert Irwin his design was not ADA compliant and he would have to provide wheelchair ramps from the museum into the garden.

Our Mr Irwin was not about to disfigure his art project to lay down some extraneous ramps so he decided construction could just jolly well wait, he would redo the whole concept of the access thing altogether. His design was going to be his design and he was not going to just stick a ramp in it.

From this display of arrogant stubbornness came one of my favorite reasons to return often.
