WILDFLOWER GARDEN LITERATURE CLUB
Flowers in Fiction -
That will be our theme. We will gather once a month March
through October to discuss a piece of literature that makes use
of the world of flowers. Whether growing wild or in a garden,
for pleasure or poison, as background or sanctuary we will
choose a novel that encourages our own setting - the Shirley
G. Cross Wildflower Garden -
and stimulate a deeper appreciation for the botanical leitmotif
in literature. We
will meet in the garden to have our discussions with a treat and
a beverage when weather is nice, inside otherwise. We focus on
many aspects of the novels in our discussions (mostly what we
liked and or didn't like), but always lean toward the botanical
themes and tour bits of the garden that connect to the stories.

individual details of specific species, adaption,
climate change and the impact of the legacy of Thornton
Burgess. Bring your curiosity to explore and discover
the Nature around you. Dress for the weather, as we
rarely cancel. Consider sturdy hiking footwear. Bring
