mr. darby in the garden
abraham darby was my very first english rose and i am so squeakily happy to have it in this garden now.
this rose shatters like some austins do and i am still convinced that it is an austin. could it be sharifa asma?
the bourbon, souvenir de la malmaison
since i started the graduate program, i have lost the time to read for pleasure. i have had michael pollan's in defense of food: an eater's manifesto and the botany of desire on my booklist for a while now.
pbs' the botany of desire will hold me for another month and a half until i can read over the holiday break.
