Gardens are funny things. They are of nature, but not natural. They are the results of unseen human hands and, mostly, scaled to a human-sized experience. Sometimes the gardener’s hand is more hidden; other times, it is much more apparent. Along the spectrum of more naturalistic to more conceptual, the gardens at Cornerstone in Sonoma fall to the extreme conceptual end. They are art installations using “garden” as medium, inspiration and context.
If you’re in the area, it’s worth a visit. Entrance to the gardens is free! And because it’s Sonoma, you’re always within arm’s reach of a delicious glass of wine (or three).
