Undercover: The Emil Bach House Gardens

A daylily, still gorgeus though its time ended months ago

A fern in the parkway, settled in for its long, winter nap

The once-brilliant yellow marigolds, still fighting to supply a mellow gold in the landscape

One of the silvery Cinerarias in the front planter, still standing tall in the face of cold winter winds

I’ve been told the gardens will be kept up, though Jane has retired and moved to Idaho.  A young man named Bill, who I met late the other afternoon, has been overseeing the rehabbing both here at Bach House AND behind it, at the Farcroft, which I’ve shown you many times before.

Also…some very good news!:  the now-boarded windows of this Frank Lloyd Wright design (c. 1915) SHALL be replaced, with true reproductions of Mr. Wright’s original stained glass designs…oh, I cannot wait to see them!

2013 shall prove to be very exciting for this neighborhood!  I hope I will be allowed to do some photography inside, as Bill took my card and said he felt photography is an important part of a home’s decor!
