I read [garden catalogs] for news,
for driblets of knowledge,
for aesthetic pleasure,
and at the same time, I am planning the future -
so I read in dream.
Today’s Unearthed Words are all about seed catalogs.
If you are a new gardener, welcome to the joy of curling up on the couch with a cup of coffee and a notebook, and a seed catalog. If you’re a veteran gardener, you got this down. In either case, you’ll enjoy these verses and poems on a gardener’s favorite Winter activity: going through seed catalogs.
