A Cherub in Spring

This little statue is close to the western wall, in the middle section of the English Garden of Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens.

According to Stan Hywets website, the walled English Garden has often been described as Gertrude Seiberlings favorite garden refuge. Although Warren Manning created the first design for the English Garden, it didnt match Mrs. Seiberlings original vision for the space. Manning later recommended that the Seiberlings hire renowned female landscape architect Ellen Biddle Shipman to redesign the garden. Shipmans initial plan included a variety of sun-loving perennials but, as the surrounding trees grew into larger canopies, it became apparent that shade-loving perennials would be more appropriate.

Between the years 1989-1992, the garden underwent extensive restoration, funded in part by the Akron Garden Club. The resulting garden, with 3,300 perennials, is an accurate and complete re-creation of Shipmans original design plan for the area and is one of the only intact Shipman gardens open to the public. The beautiful reflecting pool, lych gate and garden statue, The Garden of the Water Goddess, help give this garden some of its unique architectural qualities. Today, the Akron Garden Club continues to support and care for the English Garden.


İlkbaharda bir Melek

Bu k踙k heykel, Stan Hywet Malikanesi & Bah蔒lerinin İngiliz Bah蔒si'nin orta b闤mnde, batı duvarına yakındır.

Stan Hywetin web sitesine g顤e duvarlı İngiliz Bah蔒si sıklıkla Gertrude Seiberlingin favori bah蔒 sığınağı olarak tanımlanmaktadır. Warren Manning, İngiliz Bah蔒si i蓾n ilk tasarımı yaratmış olmasına rağmen, Bayan Seiberling'in mekan i蓾n orijinal vizyonu ile uyuşmuyordu. Manning daha sonra Seiberlings'in nl kadın peyzaj mimarı Ellen Biddle Shipman'ı bah蔒yi yeniden tasarlaması i蓾n işe almasını tavsiye etti. Shipmanın ilk planı, 蔒şitli gneş seven uzun 闣rlleri i蔒riyordu, ancak 蔒vredeki ağa蔮ar daha byk kanopiler halinde bydk蔒, g闤ge seven uzun 闣rllerin daha uygun olacağı ortaya ıktı.

1989-1992 yılları arasında bah蔒, Akron Bah蔒 Kulb tarafından finanse edilen kapsamlı restorasyondan ge蔂iştir. 3.300 uzun 闣rly barındıran bah蔒, Shipman'ın b闤geye y霵elik 驆gn tasarım planının doğru ve eksiksiz bir şekilde yeniden oluşturulması ve halka aık olan tek bozulmamış Shipman bah蔒lerinden biridir. Gzel yansıtan havuz, damlı kapı ve bah蔒 heykeli, Su Tanrı蓷sı Bah蔒si, bu bah蔒ye eşsiz mimari niteliklerini kazandırıyor. Bugn Akron Bah蔒 Kulb, İngiliz Bah蔒si'ni desteklemeye ve bakım yapmaya devam ediyor.
