?GARDEN DESIGNER TOPHER DELANEY. Acclaimed for her healing gardens and renowned for infusing spirituality into every element of her work, Delaney strives to give her clients little bits of heaven amid their hectic urban environments. In the San Francisco garden, an enormous black concrete bowl (8 feet in diameter) is perfectly balanced in a 1,000 square foot backyard. Water, from no apparent source, spills evenly from the rim?accentuated with a pink glow from a neon tube hidden under the lip?and disappears through gravel. ?The entire thing is a koan (a paradox Zen Buddhist monks meditate upon in order to transcend reason and gain enlightenment): ?From where do we spring and where do we go??
