My Garden in the Hollywood Hills is a tribute to Bali Indonesia. I have worked for years with a passion to recreate what I love the most about Bali. I went there and imported stone statues and carvings, and have searched high and low for vines, trees and plants that remind me of this incredible place. In my garden I have many different varieties of Bougenvillias, Plumerias, Taros, Ferns, Japanese flowering cherry, Elephant Ears, Palms, heliconias, gingers, fruits,orchids, vines, berries, and my pride and joys are Old Hami Bamboo, Pikake, Thunbergia Grandiflora, Orchid and Cempaka trees. I have three ponds with Koi and frogs. My property is called "Kodok Surga" which is Balineese meaning "Frogs Paradise". My garden has appeared on Television and in magazines. It truly is a labor of love and my pride and joy! Last year I added about 25 different varieties of old and new roses. I take pride in displaying my flowers all over my home both inside and out with arrangements and ikebana arrangements.
