Sunday Clippings

Summer is swinging rapidly and it takes discipline to take a momentary break from work and usual obligations to catch the last of summery light and warmth before autumn comes again! Phaidon has released a book on Gertrude Jekyll’s Munstead Wood garden, and London offers plenty of hidden gardens and green spaces to escape the urban grind. The favored notebooks of the famous are revealed in Another Magazine – do you have a favorite? A Spanish village has cleverly offered their resources for sculpture held by private individuals, and the Afghan women are reviving the traditional silk industry. Sadly no one has learned from Rachel Carson about the dangers of insecticides entering the waterways as the rivers are becoming contaminated with them in the Midwest US.
