Before the palm collection was officially catalogued and tagged in 2014, W.S. Merwin scored hundreds of tags to identify each of the palms he planted. Our imaginations were sparked when we found them beneath the garden dojo—so many ways to give these new life!
In these early months of stewarding the Merwins’ house, we are making discoveries that surprise and delight us. As we go, we’ll share some of these finds with you in a new series called “Storied Objects.” To view other posts in the “Storied Objects” series, click here.

This is an amazing documentation to the many individuals cared for by William, and the time and energy required for each one.
Thank you for sharing these discoveries which nourish our souls!
