与摇钱树捕鱼·阿文一起走进花园

2013年8月28日

餐桌布置

A lovely table arrangement where the vases seem to blend into the primitive wall mural of Orient, New York . . . as imagined and painted by 跳跃 many years ago.

2012年4月, 我写了我已故朋友的美丽回忆录 克莱德“Skip” Wachsberger.

这本书叫 与摇钱树捕鱼一起进入花园。  It was first published privately by friends of 跳跃’s(在编辑和朋友的指导下 卡伦·巴西勒(Karen Braziller))。 法拉尔,施特劳斯和吉鲁 published it commercially in early 2012, although 跳跃 did not live to see that event. 在此处阅读有关该书的更多信息。

我还不能去纽约的东方访问 摇钱树捕鱼·迪恩 , 跳跃’s surviving husband, since January 2012, when I traveled there for the memorial service honoring 跳跃’一生。我爱这个地方和我所有的朋友’ve met through these two men. The garden during summertime at Adsworthy, where 跳跃 and Charles made their home, is very special. And for some reason, my trips in recent years were during fall or winter, so I hadn’在2005年左右的最高峰期间参观了这个翠绿的地方。太长!

上周,我很幸运地回到了仅仅36个小时。那不是’几乎没有足够的时间,但每一刻都充满了惊奇,喜悦,友谊和回忆。 

其中的一大亮点是准备参加由摇钱树捕鱼(Charles)发现与他共度一生的人准备的大型,美味的社区晚宴。那是摇钱树捕鱼’这是一个非常私人的故事,所以我赢了’t say more. I’我只会补充说,他现在和一个可爱,迷人的人在一起,而我’我很高兴看到摇钱树捕鱼很高兴。

跳跃’s presence is still very much evident in his garden. I was mindful of his exuberant spirit watching over me as I snipped stems, leaves and flowers from uncommon specimens that he originally selected, planted and tended to over the years. The opportunity to create the centerpieces for our wonderful dinner party was all the more special for the connection I felt between those plants and 跳跃. While the bouquets’ dahlias came from a local flower farm stand and the yellow roses were a gift to Charles from a family friend visiting his sister, artist Frieda Dean, everything else came from 跳跃’的花园。我依靠他的植物获得粗壮的叶子,细小的芽,蕨叶和种头。摇钱树捕鱼为花瓶提供了精美的玻璃cut和两个小奶油罐。 

我们的桌子上摆满了老式亚麻布,陶器,银器和高脚杯。您可以在上方看到它的外观。

这是花园里一些花束的图片:

The larger vase features all sorts of gorgeous leaves, fronds and stems from 跳跃’s garden.

I’ll close with one of 跳跃’关于他花园的报价,摘录自 与摇钱树捕鱼一起进入花园:

 “有人给我拿了一块空白的画布,那是一块大画布。对于艺术家来说,这是理想的选择。我以绘画的方式进行园艺:我从脑海中浮现出一幅画,然后想出了创作方法。唯一的区别是我的颜色和纹理是对生命渴望的生物。一旦我将它们放在画布上,它们就会以任何方式增长。我无意画这幅画。”
