"Terrariums" from Indoor gardening: artificial lighting, terrariums, hanging baskets, and plant selection

Prepared by Henry M. Cathey (1928-) and Lowell E. Campbell (1920-).

https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/007407287

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/cbc33_terrariums_ks_128kb.mp3 (7:05)

Add macramé and Harvest Yellow and you'll have the 1970s!

Just to confirm, this is PD in the US even though it was published in 1978.

Hello Michele,

The speaker in this poem is really enjoying lounging about in a bower and sniffing the roses, lucky fellow. I guess that means a successful garden! I hope whether you have a rock garden, a desert garden, a bower of your own or something else, if you're lucky enough to have a garden during the pandemic that you've been enjoying it to the full!

Dolce Far Niente by Gustav Pfizer (1807-1890)

For some reason I can't add your name to the MW, altho you are in our catalog with many projects. Maybe Lynne can help me add it. I've been having a few computer problems lately.

Meditations upon a Garden is PL OK. Thanks so much for this unique contribution, so full of metaphors comparing man's soul condition with that of plants. My goodness, what contrariness!

I thirst for thirstiness, I weep for tears.
Well pleas'd I am to be displeased thus:
The only thing I fear, is want of fears,
Suspecting I am not suspicious.
