365 Days of Shakespeare

That's right – the Bard in a year.

237. How an English garden grows

with one comment

I’ve talked about Shakespeare gardens before, but this article goes into much more (and better) detail than I did at the time.

It is true that Shakespeare features plants prominently in many of his most important moments – perhaps most memorable are the list of flora and fauna that Ophelia rattles off in her madness and the magical flower that causes all the mayhem in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The article gives a great step-by-step guide on how to plan and create your own Shakespeare garden, and it also gives a nice shout-out to the gorgeous Agecroft Hall, where Richmond Shakespeare performs its annual summer festival.
