This is the view from the Homestead, the poet Emily Dickinson's home, recreated as part of an exhibit about her gardens at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. It's a lovely exhibit, interspersing her poetry, much of which was inspired by nature, with flowers and plants.

“That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet.”― Emily Dickinson . . . This life, my life, is the only 'Nanci H.' there will ever be . . . with these eyes, these finger prints, this DNA. I will take care of Nanci H because I like her and she deserves my care. Now, my soul . . . hmmm . . . it is the butterfly of how many possibilities . . . or not . . . what a mystery, what an exciting mystery . . .

Though only a few of Dickinson's poems were printed during her lifetime, many people remembered receiving one of them, often tucked into an exquisite bouquet that she had grown and arranged herself. These interests can be traced in her literary work as well. Indeed, more than two-thirds of Dickinson's lyrical letters to family and chosen friends and one-third of her brilliantly idiosyncratic poems have wildflowers or other flowers as their subject.
