I spend a lot of time studying photographs of the garden structure. There is always something new to discover in Miss Lawrence's garden, even in a literal snapshot. Relatively speaking, we have very few photos of the garden during Miss Lawrence's tenure. (If you have, or someone you know has, any photographs of the garden, I would very much love to have a copy - for reference more than anything else. Contact me!) The photos we do have offer up a bit of pixelated revelation. Take, for example, this series of photos of the front of Miss Lawrence's house:
|This photo was taken in the early 1980s - probably 1984, the year Elizabeth sold her house and moved to Maryland. |
Notice the gentle curve of the front right bed line.
So, as I said earlier, I tackled a project:
I have been surprised by how much better this area looks and feels. It just feels right now... as it should be. And thankfully, my teeth have stopped itching.
