Cricket Hill Garden in Thomaston, CT are growers of rare peonies. I visited there on Saturday and the peonies have just begun to bloom. This weekend should be peak. The parasols looked lovely and are functional too. They keep the blooms from fading and when it rains it keeps the rain from weighing down the peonies. Over the next couple of days I'll show you some of the peonies.

This is a case of life imitating art! This photo is of the Great Hall of European Art at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford.
"Interior of a Picture Gallery with the Collection of Cardinal Silvio Valenti Gonzaga"
Giovanni Paolo Panini 1749
This must have been a bear to paint.

Here are some of the pieces that were created for the flower and art show at the Wadsworth. It was hard to photograph many of them because there was glass on the art and there people observing the display - the nerve!
Piet Mondrian "Composition in Blue and White" 1955
Rene Magritte "The Fickelness of the Heart" 1950
Rene Magritte "The Tempest"1931
Max Ernst "Europe after the Rain" 1940-42

When you enter one of the side rooms at the Enid Haupt Observatory at the New York Botanical Garden there are two large potted Gardenia trees greeting you. The scent is heavenly. It reminds me of my mother, this was one of her favored scents. She loved Gardenias. For you mom on Mother's Day. I love you.

Last Friday I visited the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, CT to see the 35th Fine Art & Flowers Show. Over the next few days I'll feature more photos from the show. The Wadsworth is the oldest continually operating art museum in the United States. The collection was quite impressive. It was the first time that I had ever visited in the 40 years that I've lived in Connecticut. EEEEEeeeee gads!
