Barefoot Kate

“The statue at the edge of the reflecting pool, Barefoot Kate, or Katie can be seen dipping her toe into the water. Placed in the garden in the early 1920’s, she and her reflection are one of the most photographed scenes in the garden. The black color of the water in the pool is achieved through a chemical, non-toxic dye, which gives the pool its reflective qualities and keeps down algae.”

  1. I’d like to see this some day!

  2. Yes, if you can you should visit. It’s a beautiful garden area and I’m so impressed that it’s done by volunteers.

  3. Me too…will have to put this on my list next time I’m up your way!
