Curator of Shakespeare and Rose Gardens


Oh, envy, envy. Mixed with adoration. Mine.

The garden curators at the Huntington Gardens must have nice dreams and sleep tight and don't let the bedbugs bite. Each tour I think, no one, no one can tell a better story. But I'm wrong every time.

  1. You are back after a brief interupted service (to us! & thx for the stories) Aren't people who can tell stories about their work/interest amazing. I wanted to know about a mural on the Masonic Lodge in El Segundo & knocked & got invited to see more and got told a story about Teddy Roosevelt.
    ...sorry to say but the rose looks a bit sad...

  2. I've been a member pretty much since I moved here two years ago, and I've never taken the tour. For shame. I must make a point of it my next trip.

  3. Oh bugger. Some people shouldn't be let loose with a Canon. I absolutely have to take a photo class; but I totally appreciate your take Tash, or I’ll never learn anything.
    And Amy, you have to come on one of my first tours to load me up with friends, ok? And Tash, too. I think they set me loose end of May.

  4. There's rosemary, that's for remembrance. Pray you, love,
    remember. And there is pansies, that's for thoughts.

  8. Oh what I'd give to be on that first KB tour! Lord have mercy I would have a zillion questions for you and have to put my two cents worth in everytime you drew a breath, just like here! :)

    And give that Canon a workout. That's how you learn, by taking lots and lots of crappy photos, and every now and then you get a gem, or a potential gem you can fiddle with till it is one. ( What a great run-on sentence!)

  11. Ok Virg, I think I'm locking down the crappy photo piece. (I'm going to email you a ?)

    Margaret, you lucky duck. Did you have the caviar?

    Jean, I'm adding you to my tour list.

    PA, is he the director of the Huntington? If so, we met with him for a "chat," but no lecture.

  12. I am so misunderstood all the time! (I need a communications class)... The photo is wonderful - it's an action shot of the curator talking about a rose, pointing to it, 1000 words in that one! It's just right for the post.

  13. Tash of the great photos, you don't get out of it that easily. You and Virg are going to turn Eliza into a respectable photographer.(I'll email you. Virg is already on board.) Think of me as your hobby.

  15. Well, at least you're taking photographs. I have a new camera and well, it's a mystery.
