I seem to be drifting under panels of panes lately; and so it was at the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan last weekend.
As we toured this inspiring living gallery of plants and art, in and out of rooms of glass and paved paths of wonder whilst under a stormy sky, I could not help but wonder in awe at how art and horticulture articulate so well with each other.
The sculpture below changes as one walks around; first a man, then a woman, surrounded by shrubs and greenery.
A queen bee rules from her throne, frogs guard benches, and conservatories house exotic plants that thrive in the upper midwest lakes region.
I’ll stop writing now, dear reader, and just show you a few photos of the delights of the Meijer gardens.
