Plinth et al

The platform between art and horticulture. 

Sunday Clippings

Sunday Clippings


DSC_0400 This past week's Sunday Clippings takes on an ecological and agricultural slant rather than a horticultural one. Only one article, a profile of a British potter's garden, relates to horticulture directly while the remainder concern agriculture (almonds, urban agriculture, and trendy foods), plant classification (the dying of Latin names), and plant ecology (the cell architecture of a tree). Just as we had thought that the sweltering summer temperatures were long gone, the heat returned again this past week and only yesterday did autumnal temperatures resumed. The cool was ever perceptible this morning, and a gorgeous day followed!
