How charming and a wonderful tribute to a great actor
Hi Thanks for this fantastic Email re Katharine Hepburn ‘s Garden. As a gardener myself I found this very interesting. You are lucky to live so close to this.

Oh what a wonderful life you have in that marvellous city. Loved this post.
It is likely I also passed it and never noticed this lovely garden. She is one of my favorite actresses, such a wonderful tribute.
