Elizabeth Taylor and Dicentra Spectabilis

Even though we knew she was perhaps the last of the great Hollywood Redwoods (as Dick Cavett so  astutely  described her), it still came as a shock to hear of her death.  It was a greater shock to hear my son say that he had never heard of her; words that simultaneously made me feel not only old, but ineffective as a cultural conduit as well.   Sigh.

So here.....in these images.....a bleeding heart......my homage to the exquisite Elizabeth Taylor.

Good night, beauty.  Good night, Elizabeth.
