Going Down The Garden World Rabbit Hole

February 23, 2012

Sometimes when I am really interested in a topic (and since I’m a plant geek it’s usually something pretty geeky) my husband says I go down the rabbit hole.

I start reading about one thing, say green roofs. Then, in one article about green roofs there is something about green walls. Then, there is some thing about indoor green walls, and growing edibles on green walls and the best irrigation systems for green walls and the next thing you know I have 22 windows open on my computer and 12 books out and I am deeper than Alice In Wonderland.

Well, that happened to me today. I started reading about one thing and that led to another and, well, you can see where this is going. So, instead of writing one reeeeally long post that most readers will only be interested in parts of I am going to write three separate posts. (Unless I find more interesting stuff. Then who knows.)

All of these posts, however, do have a common thread. They deal with therapeutic gardens. There will be stuff about gardens for war veterans, for seniors, how gardens can help heal us and bios of women in the Landscape Design world doing some very interesting and groundbreaking things. Who could ask for more?

So, if you are interested in any or all of the above get ready. And if you’re not I encourage you to read the first post anyway because it might very well change your mind.

Ready. Set. Read.
