Garden Club’s Lecture Will Recall Poetry of Emily Dickinson May 10
WESTFIELD – The Rake and Hoe Garden Club of Westfield will host a garden design lecture entitled, “A Poetess’s Garden” on Wednesday, May 10, at 12: 30 p. m. at the Westfield Y. This program, which is inspired by the life and poems of Emily Dickinson, will be presented by Master Judge Emeritus, Loren Y. Johnson.
Mrs. Johnson describes Dickinson as “now considered America’s foremost poetess, but she was unrecognized in her own time.” She noted that the poet was a brilliant botanist as well, who maintained a conservatory in her father’s house where she grew exotic herbs and plants.
Noting her love for the “natural world,” Mrs. Johnson further stated that Dickinson’s poems are filled with references to birds, butterflies and varieties of flowers.
Mrs. Johnson is a past president of the Pinelands Garden Club and
a member of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. She has held offices in many garden and environmental
organizations and lectured on subjects related to flowers. She illustrates her lectures by
creating floral designs, using plants grown in her own 18th century designed garden.
To attend the meeting or learn more about the club, please call (908) 2325497.

Wilson and Florence Ballad were shoved to the back, when all three Supremes originally sang side to side?
Not to mention the fact that Ross could barely carry a note in “Divas 2000” on VH1 which was dedicated to her highness. The audience practically finished the songs as Ross paraded around the room cooing, “You know I love all of you, I really do!”
It comes down to this – the egos of Ross and Wilson duel in their nature. Ross’s simply cannot move past her refusal to share the limelight and Wilson’s ego is so rightfully bruised that she can’t move past what she sees as betrayal – not only by Ross but by the powers that be at Motown.
While two pseudoSupremes who have never sung with the Diva will accompany her on the “Return to Love” tour this summer, we have to ask ourselves, “Where is the love?”
