garden : emily's floral poetry
fame is a bee,
it has a song -
it has a sting -
ah, too, it has a wing.
- emily dickinson
hello, hello! the emily dickinson garden at the new york botanical garden is such a delight. a few years ago they had a similar display for charles darwin and i think the two would have made a lovely couple. happy mother's day to the experienced moms, new moms, moms to be, and anyone who acts like one (nurturers).
enjoy your weekend!
ps have you seen the new magazine from jeanette of fryd + design? it's gorgeous!
they recreated emily's house and had her poems displayed throughout the garden. i didn't realize she was such an avid gardener and was reminded of celia thaxter's wonderful book an island garden.
i'm trying to include people in my photos because, unlike martha stewart, i don't get private tours. plus, people make it more, well, human. usually i get their backsides, but sometimes i'm lucky.
sweet peas, fuchsia, pelargonium and hyacinth. my mom loved fuchsia plants, but had no luck with them. she would bring home the most lush plant and before you knew it all the buds would fall off.
these peonies and roses are yet to open, so we must go back ;)!
the vegetable garden was delightful and so thoughtfully designed. loved the corn.
doesn't that guy on the left look like woody allen?
pansies, columbines, poppies and delphiniums.
i love people in hats, so if you're wearing a hat, beware!
