Finally, I don’t normally publicize events, but I just felt this one at the New York Botanical Garden, from April 30-June 13, 2010, was too delicious to pass up. It is an exhibit about Emily Dickinson, the well known American poet, whose love of plants and flowers and the incredible impact they had on her poetry has been of little note until now. If you’re in the area, it’s something not to be missed. And if not, it’s worth clicking on the link to learn more about how gardening influenced Emily Dickinson throughout her life.
