Alice JoyceThe Echoing Green: The Garden in Myth and Memory records not only Jennifer Heath's everyday challenges and intimate musings but also a wealth of plant lore, literary excerpts, and gardening history. The Echoing Green: The Garden in Myth and Memory contains a veritable potpourri of revelations. For example, Health illuminates the origins of Halloween, along with observance of the Yule, the vernal equinox (nawruz in ancient Persia), the bacchanalia, and lady Day, the festival on March 25 that commemorates the reappearance of healing herbs. I will return often to this journal's pages to partake in a journey that spans the gardening year.
