Garden In The Gallery

I showed you the reflecting pool the other day. The other interior courtyard in the National Gallery is occupied by this garden, which can be viewed from both floors. I like the mood in here in the evening.

  1. There is not a free space in the courtyard.

  3. The geometry of the place is so much more evident in the low light setting.

  8. @Tomas: no, it's quite well planted!

    @Halcyon: it's very soothing.

    @Janis: I have photographed it before in daylight. There's a skylight overhead.

    @Luis: I certainly think so!

    @Marianne: I can see that too.

    @Nancy: it's art in floral form!

    @Karl: it is well looked after.

    @Jan: thank you!

    @VP: it is, yes.

    1. That's an eye catching garden with light color and shape. Sometimes I think that such a garden is extravagant with the climate change issue.

  12. That is lovely! What a great idea to bring a garden into a gallery. You don't see that usually unless it's in a greenhouse.

  13. @Red: I can see that too.

    @Beth: it's possible the flowers vary. I think they have to plan for plants that can thrive in low humidity conditions.

    @Grace: wait til you see what's on tomorrow!

    @Linda: indeed.

    @Orvokki: it is!

    @Denise: and these ones can't have the humidity of the greenhouse, since the space is open to the galleries, and the art can't tolerate humidity.

  14. That is very pretty and peaceful looking. It kind of reminds me of the courtyard garden at the Art Institute of Chicago.

  15. It must be wonderful to walk into there at this time of year, William!

  16. Creepy and cool at the same time somehow: "Last Trees on Earth! $50 Entry to spend 5 minutes with them"

  17. Gorgeous! I seem to remember a smaller patio at the Met in NYC but perhaps I dreamt it...

  18. @Sharon: I imagine other galleries have similar concepts.

    @RedPat: it is!

    @Norma: that it is.

    @Marleen: very nice indeed.

    @EG: certainly!

    @Cloudia: that's a different way of looking at it!

    @Revrunner: it's greatly appealing.

    @Ciel: it wouldn't surprise me to have one there.

  20. oh sure is amazing spot and the pictures you took a delight.
    Thank you for coming to my blog and leaving a comment. I just finished rewriting my page that was terrible. Now you can read it. I do not know how anyone could read such small printing.
