California Dreamin’

Who remembers this beautiful garden?

The Donnell Garden

The Donnell garden in Sonoma, California was designed by Thomas Church and Lawrence Halprin in 1947.  According to Architectural Historian Mark Treib, it is the “most famous garden of the twentieth century.”  Truly, an icon of classic modernism, the gardens’ owners Sandra Donnell and Justin Faggioli, have maintained and protected the original design of the garden.  What an inspiration it was then and now!
