Winter strips the trees in the museum’s front yard of their lovely green leaves, but in their bare state, I see an echo of Vincent van Gogh‘s painted olive trees. These unique, corkscrew-branched shrubs are Corylus avellana ‘Contorta,’ commonly known as Harry Lauder’s walking stick. Not quite olive trees, but I see the resemblance all the same.
