Any attendees of 2009’s “Late Show” garden festival held at Cornerstone in Sonoma, California, will remember Shirley Watts’ “The Garden of Mouthings,” which has now been installed at UCBG for “Natural Discourse.” The undulating structure inspired by a natural beehive is made of Nomex and reclaimed redwood and has been sited at UCBG on the hill above the garden of old roses.
