I’ve been working full-time in the garden this week instead of working on new posts.
And because we’re thinking about a London vacation. Any ideas? I haven’t been there in about 15 years.
This is the grave of John Tradescant the elder (c. 1570s – 1638) and of John Tradescant the younger (1608-1662) and his young son (and two wives). Naturalists, botanists, gardeners — they introduced American plants to the (then) wider world.
Transplanted now themselves, sleep here & when
Angels shall with their trumpets waken men,
And fire shall purge the world, these three shall rise
And change this Garden for a Paradise.
