“My garden is riotous, unholy, deliriously glorious!
I wish you were here.” - Isabella Stewart Gardner in a letter to her friend, protege, and fellow art-lover: Bernard Berenson.
In her missive to Berenson, Mrs. Gardner referenced the flora growing at the Gardner’s Brookline estate 'Green Hill.' Here, Mrs. Gardner continued to cultivate her lifelong love of horticulture. The spirit of Mrs. Gardner’s passion for plants blooms perennially in the Courtyard and throughout her Museum.
