The Vista restoration is well underway. Piping has been placed along its length, which will provide water and electrical power as needed for this area, as well as serve the adjacent Color Gardens (to be restored in a few years). Simple handrails will be installed, along with more than 100 new trees, hundreds of ornamental grasses, and an enriched paving pattern.
I am reminded that Artemis, who guards the main entrance to the Walled Garden, is also associated with deer. How fitting that she will face the deer on the great lawn in front of the Walled Garden, an area where they will remain free to roam.
Enjoy the rest of the summer, and come climb our stairs for your health!
