Contemplative Garden


thumbnail   thumbnail   thumbnail

The Contemplative Garden is a flower-filled oasis featuring such plants as Desert Columbine, Rose Mallow, and Indian blanket. This garden, honoring the memory of Emil and Bernice Dittmer, whose generous contribution helped finance the garden, has as its centerpiece a unique drip fountain. The cooling fountain also provides the calming music of water droplets falling from overhead onto metal resonators.
