Isabella Gardner Museum each April. Now through mid-April, in honor of Isabella Gardner's birthday, and in celebrating a tradition she started in 1904, the museum greets the arrival of spring with a very special Hanging Nasturtium installation. The 20 foot long vines riddled with orange blooms, cascading from the 3d floor balconies, are a sight unique to the Gardner. This breath-taking display is free with admission and visitors can also enjoy the edible blossoms at the Gardner Café, where a special menu involving nasturtiums is served through the month.
