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 kk heykel, Stan Hywet Malikanesi & Bahelerinin İngiliz Bahesi'nin orta blmnde, batı duvarına yakındır.

Stan Hywetin web sitesine gre duvarlı İngiliz Bahesi sıklıkla Gertrude Seiberlingin favori bahe sığınağı olarak tanımlanmaktadır. Warren Manning, İngiliz Bahesi iin ilk tasarımı yaratmış olmasına rağmen, Bayan Seiberling'in mekan iin orijinal vizyonu ile uyuşmuyordu. Manning daha sonra Seiberlings'in nl kadın peyzaj mimarı Ellen Biddle Shipman'ı baheyi yeniden tasarlaması iin işe almasını tavsiye etti. Shipmanın ilk planı, eşitli gneş seven uzun mrlleri ieriyordu, ancak evredeki ağalar daha byk kanopiler halinde bydke, glge seven uzun mrllerin daha uygun olacağı ortaya ıktı.

1989-1992 yılları arasında bahe, Akron Bahe Kulb tarafından finanse edilen kapsamlı restorasyondan gemiştir. 3.300 uzun mrly barındıran bahe, Shipman'ın blgeye ynelik zgn tasarım planının doğru ve eksiksiz bir şekilde yeniden oluşturulması ve halka aık olan tek bozulmamış Shipman bahelerinden biridir. Gzel yansıtan havuz, damlı kapı ve bahe heykeli, Su Tanrıası Bahesi, bu baheye eşsiz mimari niteliklerini kazandırıyor. Bugn Akron Bahe Kulb, İngiliz Bahesi'ni desteklemeye ve bakım yapmaya devam ediyor.
