Still walking …

Poems to Hang in a Walled Garden driftwoodFor four months this summer, four fine poets took up residencies at each of the four gardens of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.  I have had the great job of driving around Scotland to beautiful gardens working with interesting and lovely people.  And it’s not quite over!

On 28 November a celebration of the project is being held in Edinburgh at the RBGE.  Full details can be found using this link at eventbrite – join us if you can!

Between now and then, our online celebration begins with a reprise of blogs and poems from Gerry when in Dawyck, Jean in Logan during August, Mandy’s month in Edinburgh and Sue’s June at Benmore.  Relive summer 2013!

Here are two short poems from the anthology Sue Butler created to celebrate the glorious redwoods at Benmore -

Sad trees by Rosemary Owen, Glasgow
Puck’s Hut:
A beacon in the distance.
Trees dance to the melancholy of the wind
As I descend.

Untitled and anonymous
Tall, tall trees
with green, green leaves
are nature’s key.
This I now see.
