I’m just back from a lovely overnighter in Edinburgh, cared for by Scottish Poetry Library, to celebrate the official end of the wonderful Walking With Poets project. This summer, the SPL put 4 poets in the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh’s four Gardens across Scotland. I was lucky enough to be in Logan Garden, in far western Galloway – Scotland with palm trees, a gulf stream garden at the very edge of west.
The party took place in the Lecture Theatre at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, who hosted us wonderfully.
Sue Butler, Mandy Haggith, Gerry Loose and I read poems inspired by our residencies and lovely Jennifer L Williams, poet and programme manager at SPL, invited us to tell tales of our time in the RBGE’s Botanic Gardens. Of which more at http://walkingwithpoets.com/
