Hiltrud "Sam" Webber passed away unexpectedly in August 2011. This memorial gallery has both photographs she posted plus many others contributed from her extensive library of photographs of the plants, scenes and attractions found throughout Nathanael Greene/Close Memorial Park. She is missed by many but by viewing her collection of photographs, you can appreciate her love of flowers, shrubs, trees, insects,and other attractions found throughout the Parks as seen through her eyes.You can tour the Botanical Center's grounds and many beautiful gardens with a few clicks of your mouse.
Photographs by Hiltrud "Sam" Webber
Galleries designed by Barbara Clark
Introduction by George Deatz
Here are photos that did not fit in any other gallery.
This is the last gallery of pictures taken by Hiltrud "Sam" Webber.
When I began this project in early September 2011, my goal was to preserve her photographs and to show the beauty of the many gardens in the Parks which are ever changing. Choosing from thousands of pictures was challenging but enjoyable. Sadly, some of quality and beauty was lost in many photos because of the website's file size restrictions.
After seeing how Sam loved photography and the Parks, hope you are inspired to experience this extraordinary area for yourself. If you do, I am sure you will return often. Since these galleries are at your fingertips for reference, please enjoy them frequently and invite others to join you.
My gratitude to George Deatz, past president and board member of Friends of the Garden for his advice, guidance, and faith in me. Also to RJ Jacob, FOG Administrator, for his assistance and patience, I am truly appreciative.
A special thank-you to those who assisted in the identification of many flowers:
