Nearly three decades ago, an artist couple now known, simply, as Dick and Jane, decided to turn their Ellensburg, Wash., house—located some 120 miles southeast of Seattle—into a temple of weird and wacky public art.

Recently Seattle-based real estate consultant Marlow Harris, who runs a blog called Unusual Life, visited Jane at home—Dick passed away a few years ago—and filmed a video tour of her little Americana folk-art garden.
