Historical Context:
“Plant life will grow wherever roots can find soil. Weeds are the perfect example. They grow where we don't want them and we take measures to keep them away. Plants, even when controlled and arranged in domesticated landscapes have a beauty, tenacity, wildness, and humor that is evident throughout the four season. These photographs are of gardens in Newburyport and West Newbury, Massachusetts.” – Douglas R. Gilbert
