Weâ€™ve all seen red roses, blue irises and yellow daffodils. But when we really look closely at a flower, whole new worlds of beauty and intricacy emerge. On Wednesday, June 18 at 4 pm at the Education Center at Berkshire Botanical Garden, join author Teri Dunn Chace for this illustrated talk based on her recent book, Seeing Flowers: Discover the Hidden Life of Flowers. Chaceâ€™s lyrical and illuminating essays complement the extraordinarily detailed floral images by photographer Robert Llewellyn. Chace will offer insights on each flower by exploring distinguishing characteristics and share fascinating tidbits, tales and lore as we view images revealing amazing details of stamens and pistils, shadings on a petal or the secret recesses of nectar tubes.
Teri Dunn Chace is a writer and editor with more than 30 titles in publication, including How to Eradicate Invasive Plants and The Anxious Gardenerâ€™s Book of Answers. Sheâ€™s also written and edited extensively for Horticulture, North American Gardener, Backyard Living and Birds & Blooms.Â BBG members $15, nonmembers $20.Â Register at http://www.berkshirebotanical.org/ai1ec_event/seeing-flowers/?instance_id=2615.
