The poet and the garden: Emily Dickinson

I'd really like to read this book, The Gardens of Emily Dickinson by Judith Farr. Meanwhile, thanks to the Harvard College Library I can browse Emily Dickinson's herbarium specimens. Fascinating.

In other garden news, there isn't any gardening news due to constant rain, freezing cold and lack of time. I occasionally pop out, wearing a coat, to water the geraniums in the greenhouse or pick a courgette or two but that's it. What a summer.
