Artist As Poet II

A Poet’s Garden

Although we are temporarily closed, our Poet’s Garden can be seen through our windows. We’ve added a few things so the scenes are fresh. You’ll find an Oriental garden up front with a table where the poet has been working on his calligraphy. Examples by Liz Sheppard are above. Next is a natural setting with photographs by Ken Deveney and Jonah Bornstien and Steve pens a trail sketchbook. They are surrounded by pods, leaves and mushrooms. Straight ahead is the Italian garden with a beautiful outdoor sculpture holding a cornucopia of roses and ivy. Above her on a pedestal is a massive arrangement of more roses and trailing vines set off on the wall with a romantic painting by Rebecca Gabriel. There is a table set with Chianti and fruit for the gardener who is taking a break planting – basket and hat set aside. In the far corner you’ll find the French country garden. Bright and colorful with grape vines and a wonderful painting by Pegi Smith ” She Dreams of Ravens”.
