Costa Rica #3 - Inspired Clippings

What do you do if you have a park of sculpture hidden inside the cypress bushes?

Help it out, of course!

Since the 1960's, gardener Evangelisto Blanco has been the gardener at this city park in Zarcero. No money for stone to carve? Make the most of your day job!

These arches are quite large and wandering around in them feels like being in another world.

We just happened to drive through this town and I had to check it out. There was a wedding in the works up at the church. And plenty of people enjoying the park and the flowers throughout it.

Click on the label "Exc-Costa Rica", below, to see other parts of the excursion.

That is just way cool. Like Alice in Wonderland or Fantasia, something crazy like that.

Amazing, South America just seems to have so much to offer for garden people; I would love to go to so many places there... Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos!

I've seen it referred to as a Dr. Seuss garden!

I've never seen anything like this! What an imagination! And the color green is so fresh and healthy! Thanks for sharing these images.
