Today’s flurry of snow settling round what few flowers are out in the garden also brings a couple of trailers for my new collection.
You can read an ‘In Conversation’ piece I did with Paris Morel on the Arc website here. Apparently the cover’s still work-in-progress but you can see the beautiful photo of an Eryngium taken by Karen Melvin in her garden. Out of shot, I am the one holding the piece of white card behind the plant.
One of the poems from Reading the Flowers (due in the Spring – with a launch reading at Hexham Book Festival) is in the new edition of the Australian Plumwood Mountain Journal, guest edited by Tricia Dearborn. You can read it – ‘Self Portrait as a Case of Stick Insects’, and another newer poem – ‘Watching the Perseids with Sue’, here.
