Earlier this week I heard a segment on NPR about the New York Botanical Garden's new exhibition, Emily Dickinson's Garden: The Poetry of Flowers. (the story)

The man who designed the garden for the exhibit spoke about including dandelions, something that they'd never done before. Apparently dandelions were among Dickinson's favorite flowers and the bloom to which she most likened herself.


  1. My kids are growing dandelions in our garden. The local birds and butterflies seem to enjoy them too. So they stay.

  2. I haven't been to the NYBG in over 20 years, but when I heard about this exhibit I was sure wishing I could see it!
