Clematis: The Queen of Vines Imported into Europe from Japanese gardens in the 18th century, this ostentatious bloomer derives its name from the Ancient Greek klematis, or climbing vine. Linnaeus, the Enlightenment mega-organizer of botany, was so impressed by the flower''s climbing skills that he removed the Greek name from a previously classified plant and gave it to the star newcomer. In its many enchanting forms and colors, the Clematis appears in late spring and endures all the way to the first frost, while providing a continuous profusion of flowers. A favorite food of butterflies and hummingbirds, the same plant can bloom for decades, ascending garden walls, shading verandas, and winding poetically up trellises and lamp posts.

Henry Dunay''s Miniature Garden This pendant-brooch by Henry Dunay speaks to the little art works coming into bloom all around us here on the streets of New York. The sight of vibrantly colored sidewalk micro-gardens, and the joy they bring, are an eagerly-anticipated spring phenomenon, a joint gift of nature and our generous, talented neighbors. Within the constraints of a few square feet, framed by ornamental ironwork, these little early modernist style compositions of hue, form and texture are conjured from miniature tulips, narcissus, snowdrops, crocus and periwinkles, all interspersed with electric spring-green leaves. Fellow New Yorker Henry Dunay, a lifelong jeweler, champion of handmade work, and recipient of numerous awards, says that an important aspect of his art has been to capture a se ... nse of natural flow, and to speak to our subconscious minds. He succeeds brilliantly here, with this joyful evocation of the natural jewels of spring.
