I'm a plant lover, grower, and gardener, but I have never really thought of myself as a garden writing reader. Then Robin and Dale introduced me to the Victorian writings of Celia Thaxter. I was immediately struck with the calming and eloquent writing. Despite the time she was writing, her writing is lyrical and not flowery or weedy. A huge garden on a quiet island off the coast of Maine: my new mental retreat when I need some internal calm.
