Inspired By My Pinterest Boards: This Year’s Category is GARDENING
The University of Oxford Botanic Garden is the oldest botanic garden in the UK. Since it was founded in 1621 the Garden has evolved and is now recognised as a classic yet contemporary botanic garden at the heart of the University and City of Oxford. The gardens are located on the High Street.
In my novel, Greening of a Heart, Hannah Winchester has an appointment with a friend at the OBG. “Jackson dropped Hannah in front of the Oxford Botanical Gardens where one of the curators, George Pringle, was expecting her. After she explained her intention to write about the vicarage garden, he readily agreed to read the manuscript. “For you dear, anything, but I am ruthless in catching your botanical errors.” It was my own visit to the OBG that inspired this connection to Greening.
