Emily Dickinson's Garden: Poetry of Flowers - Many of Emily's poems and letters allude to her love of plants, flowers and the natural world. This comprehensive exhibition reveals the renowned poet as a less well-known gardener. A re-creation of Dickinson's 19th century New England flower garden and her home, the Homestead, in the Enid A Haupt Conservatory showcases her favorite plants and flowers in the surrounding that inspired so much of her writing. A rare glimpse of Emily's world, her reclusiveness, her adoration of flowers and plants, her reluctance to share her poetry with outsiders is seen through books, manuscripts, photographs, and the white dress, in the William Rodina and Giovanni Foroni LoFaro Gallery of the LuEsther T. Mertz Library. - New York Botanical Garden - 05/18/10
