I Read Garden Catalogs for News

by Katharine S. White

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.

The Daily Gardener podcast:

Words inspired by the garden are the sweetest, most beautiful words of all.
