Revisiting the heyday of department stores and five-and-dimes

Stephen Orr's 'Tomorrow's Garden'

Once an ersatz English cottage garden, Carolyn Bennett's new backyard has true desert plants such as a large, spherical dasylirion and several kinds of agaves. Mediterranean-climate plants, including chalky blue succulents, salvias and silver artichokes line the edges of a path made of local Santa Barbara stone and give the garden a looseness reminiscent of the foreign gardens she once tried to replicate.
