Of all the gardens on the Dallas Garden Writers Symposium tour, the Hobbit House was my favorite. This garden was inspired by a love for whimsy. It was designed for children, but adults love it, too. Landscape architect Rosa Findsley is the hand behind this fanciful garden, but it all started with the owner’s powerful imagination.
A winding path takes visitors through a dark forest where there are surprises behind every turn. A walk across drawbridge leads to a magical fountain…think The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. The owner told me, “Everyone needs a little magic in their life.”
