The RPO Showhouse is worth visiting this year for several reasons: one is that my dad, Jeff Koopus, designed and built the kitchen; another is that the location is the Ellwanger estate on Mt. Hope Ave. The house is privately owned, but the fabulous garden belongs to the Landmark Society and is overseen by great friend of the UGJ Beverly Gibson.
Here is a shot of the garden, and one of Beverly, and then one of Beverly, in the garden, lighting a gas plant on fire. (Try it at home!)
