Skyward The Lavender-white Eyes
Photograph - Digital Photograph
Purple sage and Hidcote English lavender together in the herb garden. Inspiration for the title comes from the poem, "The Rear Porches of an Apartment-Building":
"A SKY that has never known sun, moon or stars, |
A sky that is like a dead, kind face, |
Would have the color of your eyes, |
O servant-girl, singing of pear-trees in the sun, |
And scraping the yellow fruit you once picked |
When your lavender-white eyes were alive."
Maxwell Bodenheim, (l. 1-6).
