The Power of Pink and Purple


These are some of my favorite photos in these colors–most taken at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, and a great poem to go with them, by Pamela Brown’s book “Nature’s Gifts”.  Photo above is me in summer regalia taken at the (temporary) installation “Monet’s Garden”at the Bronx Botanic Garden.  People thought I was part of the exhibit…

May you, just once or twice in your lifetime, see something infinitely rare and strange and beautiful.

I wish you delight of plants – the small miracles of graft and cutting, seed and bulb and corm. of new life from the earth.

I wish you the gloom of the garden in winter – and after months of anticipation, the small, green signs of spring.
