Time Travel

Fuller's Teasel remains in February

The remains of the teasel at Brooklyn Botanic in February conjure up memories of lilies and sunlight and I am transported back to one amazing summer afternoon in the Shakespeare garden. There are plants that will forever bring me back to this place where I first got to know them. I'm grateful that I've been imprinted by these beautiful images of Brooklyn Botanic and that each walk through this place remains both fresh and familiar. Teasels are agressive plants and considered invasive in some parts of this country, but it's easy to see why gardeners planted it.
