This week, Jason Davis took viewers On the Road to a spectacular garden west of Minneapolis. Wally Marx started work on it seven years ago, and wow, did he get busy. He had quite the canvas to work with, unlike some of us who are stuck with city lots, 40 feet square. His budget is a lot bigger than mine, too.
The Wallace Gardens are listed in the recent book, 1001 Gardens You Must See Before You Die, but, uh, this is a private garden, one that only a handful of people have seen. Good luck trying to check this off the list.
Thanks to Davis, however, we all get a peek at this masterpiece. Here's the video clip.
The nicest thing about the video? It was put together with clips from throughout the growing season. And the aerial shots.
UPDATE: it appears the KSTP video link is no longer operative. Here's a StarTribune video instead. Unfortunately, the Strib didn't get any aerial footage.
