We did a double take when we saw Google’s logo today!

We’re big fans of cyanotypes here at the Gardens. A few years ago, Taskforce volunteers worked with artist Alexander Hamilton in making cyanotypes using things from the Gardens. Alexander used these to make beautiful prints for use in the new Southern Hospital.

It’s beautiful to see Anna Atkin’s cyanotypes from hundred of years ago. Seeing all the plants makes us excited for spring.
