You can find "Twisted" at the Mounts Botanical Garden right by PBI.

"This is [Cutting] Corners, sculptural landscape design by Patrick Daugherty," says Jeff Krebs of Mounts Botanical Garden.

Patrick is an artist from North Carolina who has around 300 of these designs all over the world.

Crooked Corners is the latest stick sculpture he built with his son and with some help of some volunteers.

"I think about 100 [volunteers]," says Jeff.

"So a 100 people are working with this at the same time," I tease.

"Not at the same time, no. That would be a little intense," laughs Jeff.

The Dr. Seuss looking house is made out of Willow Saplings that are shipped from upstate New York. Three tons of saplings woven together.

"We've already had kids climbing through here, playing around, playing hide-and-seek, it's like a maze."

The exhibit could actually start growing if the ground remains damp enough, and will require trimming.

They anticipate having Crooked Corners on Display for the next couple of years.

The exhibit is free for members, and $10 for non-members.
