Don’t expect to see Brad Pitt lounging in “A River Runs Through It” — the display garden created by Jim and Lois Hays of Olympia’s Evergreen Landscaping and Ponds.
The 1992 fly fishing-themed drama set in Montana (it also stars Tom Skerritt) only serves as the inspiration for this native garden.
“I was enamored with the beautiful water scenes,” Lois Hays said.
The couple’s 15-foot by 15-foot garden is heavy with firs, pines, maples and other native plants. The centerpiece is a meandering waterfall-filled stream.
Visitors should keep an eye out for bear and deer in the garden. Both will be there — provided by Alden’s Taxidermy.
