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 Hywet痴 website, the walled English Garden has often been described as Gertrude Seiberling痴 favorite garden refuge. Although Warren Manning created the first design for the English Garden, it didn稚 match Mrs. Seiberling痴 original vision for the space. Manning later recommended that the Seiberlings hire renowned female landscape architect Ellen Biddle Shipman to redesign the garden. Shipman痴 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 Shipman痴 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錮k heykel, Stan Hywet Malikanesi & Bah軻leri地in İngiliz Bah軻si'nin orta blmnde, batı duvarına yakındır.

Stan Hywet段n web sitesine gre duvarlı İngiliz Bah軻si sıklıkla Gertrude Seiberling段n favori bah軻 sığınağı olarak tanımlanmaktadır. Warren Manning, İngiliz Bah軻si i輅n ilk tasarımı yaratmış olmasına rağmen, Bayan Seiberling'in mekan i輅n orijinal vizyonu ile uyuşmuyordu. Manning daha sonra Seiberlings'in nl kadın peyzaj mimarı Ellen Biddle Shipman'ı bah軻yi yeniden tasarlaması i輅n işe almasını tavsiye etti. Shipmanın ilk planı, 軻şitli gneş seven uzun mrlleri i軻riyordu, ancak 軻vredeki ağa輙ar daha byk kanopiler halinde bydk軻, glge seven uzun mrllerin daha uygun olacağı ortaya ıktı.

1989-1992 yılları arasında bah軻, Akron Bah軻 Kulb tarafından finanse edilen kapsamlı restorasyondan ge輓iştir. 3.300 uzun mrly barındıran bah軻, Shipman'ın blgeye ynelik zgn tasarım planının doğru ve eksiksiz bir şekilde yeniden oluşturulması ve halka aık olan tek bozulmamış Shipman bah軻lerinden biridir. Gzel yansıtan havuz, damlı kapı ve bah軻 heykeli, Su Tanrı軋sı Bah軻si, bu bah軻ye eşsiz mimari niteliklerini kazandırıyor. Bugn Akron Bah軻 Kulb, İngiliz Bah軻si'ni desteklemeye ve bakım yapmaya devam ediyor.
