Tree Rescuer builds “Garden of Poetry”

Tree Rescuer builds “Garden of Poetry”

At this year’s Giardina in Zurich, one of Europe’s indoor “live your garden” events, a Swiss landscape gardener has created “Garden of Poetry”. A closer look reveals that the low wall of the garden is made of books. Reading is seminal and transforms an ensconced retreat into a cosmopolitan garden: in the carriage on the left, authors of the “Reportagen” Magazine read reports form all over the world.

The landscape designer calls himself the “tree rescuer” and, in his own words, puts books where we expect bricks to return to nature what she has given or we have taken from her.

Of course, I could picture Dorothy and William interested in this indoor-outdoor landscape. But how Dorothy would have processed the experience in her journal I can hardly fathom. And William’s “Let Nature be your teacher”, I wonder what tables it would have turned.
