Overview

Barbara Robinson was born in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, and attended schools there and in Philadelphia. She is a mother and grandmother who spent the majority of her adult life in Indianapolis, Indiana, where she raised her children and was blessed with grandchildren. She now resides in Wheeling, West Virginia, in a restored Victorian home. On several visits to England, primarily to visit orangeries, she discovered many unusual English gardening terms and an array of unique and purpose-built structures created either by the estate owners or famous architects. For several years she kept a file of these terms and buildings. Her investigation of a single term often lead to more extensive exploration of interesting historical facts and an acquaintance with the impact government can have on the landscape such as the passing of the Enclosure Acts, and the positive steps being taken for conservation. The end result was England: A Garden and Landscape Glossary.
