Biedenharn Garden Writing 2007

On Saturday, April 21, 2007, the NELRC held it's Spring Meeting at the exquisite Biedenharn Museum and Gardens. After an excellent educational program by Christy Francis that shared the exciting educational activities provided by the Biedenharn Endowment, educators enjoyed "Writing Inspirations in the Gardens" and a tour of the home. The writings below were submitted by the authors to Kathy O'Neal for publication on the NELRC website.

Bird Sounds
Water Fall
Sweet Smell of Outdoors
Flowers Blooming Pink and Purple
Arching Trees
Bending Downward
Smell of Grass
Freshly Cut
Cool Wind Blowing
Oh! So Nice
What Beautiful God Creations?

Green plants & Flowers everywhere. 
Follow me home, you will find none there.
As I sat on the bench in the shade, looking across the lawn at the beautiful water fountain, I feel as if I am floating on a crystal mountain.
Coming back to reality.
I realize in order to have a garden like this, Somebody must help me!

Fragrant and colorful
Lovely to behold
Our link to nature
Worlds to unfold
Eternal and everlasting
Rare and mysterious
