In a Garden

Dome and Green Plants

Whoever loves and understands a garden will find contentment within. ~ Chinese Proverb

While exploring the Conservatory at the New York Botanical Gardens, I could hardly watch where I was stepping, so enchanted was I with the intricate design of the golden struts that supported the glass ceiling of the garden.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. Beautiful! I’m always drawn to looking up at the light in the greenhouses and conservatories, too.

      I love looking through greenhouse ceilings, also through tree canopies in a forest, or behind me when I ‘m taking a photo. Amazing I ever shoot anything directly in front of me! LOL.

  2. Wonderful lines and color in your image. I love botanical gardens… this the same one that has Monet’s garden? I heard about it and it sounds fabulous — wish I could see it.
