The Medieval Garden Blog

I don't often plug other pages, but I have been entranced by this blog for days now! The blog is run by the Cloisters Museum which is part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Museum has thousands of pieces of Medieval art, and a garden to match. I stumbled upon it while looking up a plant in a Dungeons and Dragons Manual - Colewort. Turns out its an old name for types of wild cabbage or kale.

This blog fits together art, lore, biology and gardening. It's replete with primary sources from the era and links to everywhere! Check it out, it's my favorite new horticulture pastime.

I have a journal (dated 1980) that was given to me as a Christmas gift, with this image on the cover. I love it - I think it was a tapestry! {:-Deb
