The library and gardens are located on 2.2 acres in Newport Beach on the Pacific Coast Highway a short distance from the Pacific Ocean.
The yarn bombed wheelbarrow greets visitors and was created by volunteers in the community and the exhibit represents hundreds of hours of labor and miles of yarn.
There are gardens filled with native, exotic, and desert plants with patios, conservatories and shade structures.They serve delicious food at the lovely Cafe Jardin and Tea Garden Creperie, and afternoon tea in the gardens by reservations only.
The entrance to one of the shade structures was the beginning of the yarn bombing.
One of the whimsical Pelicans made from drift wood and shells greets you.
Tropical Palm trees grow through the shade structures.
The volunteers call themselves "Yarn Bombing Bandits" and their agenda is to bridge the generational divide, support community art and remind the world that without plants, we cannot knit, breathe, eat, or live! Their charming "bandit" photos are posted throughout the garden.
Humor is a major component of yarn bombing, which by its nature embodies contradictory idiosyncrasies within itself.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed your little whimsical yarn bomb tour. I sincerely appreciate your visits, e-mails, comments and those following my blog.
I am busy painting lots of new small paintings to show at the Artisan Fair in November and will be poping in from time to time to share some of my new small works.
Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin
