Colette and I love to visit flowers. It sounds so simple, and it is. Small things - and a baby teaches a person to love the most minute details. But the thing about gardens is that they are the definition of democratic aesthetics. The best prints and patterns are found in the most accessible spots - outside - the plants. Anyone can go to this garden (Fort Tryon) where the beauty is partitioned freely. There is a good sign sitting among these flowers: "Let no one say, and say it to your shame, that all was beauty here, until you came."
