The late Wade. Wade's Garden

We had not seen the update about Wade's death and drove by there yesterday. A woman came out of the house and let us know. She said she was one of the caretakers of the estate, and that his artwork is in the process of being moved so that the public can still enjoy it. The outdoor items will be moved to the local botanical gardens. She also told us where the indoor items were to be placed, but I was shocked at the news and honestly can't remember.

Wade had a close working relationship with the local botanical gardens, so it's good news that his outdoor artwork will be displayed there.

A 74-year-old man who's had three strokes started using the right side of his brain to make sculptures, stained glass, wood carvings, and a massive collection of blue bottle trees. Admission is free, and he loves to give tours.
