The guys are off to Cox Arboretum. Richard can tell from the drive they're in a different part of town. They're in suburbia. This park has open grass areas, big trees and
water. It's a beautiful place. Cox Arboretum has been a favorite of Chris' for many years. The newest addition to the Cox landscape is the Samuel Mayman Edible Landscape
Garden. It replaces a garden that was here before but quite frankly, Chris can't remember what it looked like. But it didn't look like this. This is a wonderful improvement.
He likes the open lawn space. One comes through the gate and sees a garden that runs in a full oval. Then upon further inspection you notice it's full of wonderful edible
plants and they look great together. It shows one doesn't need to plant flowers or vegetables in a straight row to get a beautiful effect. Importantly, the whole design can
be made much more compact for the average gardener if they don't have this much space. It's pretty and productive.
