West Asheville House

Lots are at a premium in Asheville and this neighborhood utilizes
steep lots for several houses overlooking the River Arts District
in West Asheville.

West Asheville Garden Stroll 2011 (Part 1)

The third annual West Asheville Garden Stroll was held on September 10th
with perfect fall weather and happy crowds.  This year the
gardens were concentrated in two areas and very walkable.
The Sunny Point Cafe was a good starting point on the tour with
vegetables for their patrons, cold lime-lemonade for the strollers, and clean restrooms.

This garden is concentrated in the front yard - no lawn - and the fence
and entrance gate design is excellent.  Pine needles are used
for the pathway which meanders around the house.

bees and her work.  See http://thehoneybeeproject.com/
