When I was young and jobless some six or so years ago, I spent a lovely summer travelling through Massachusetts. One of my favourite memories of that trip was visiting the Emily Dickinson museum in Amherst, which is a real time capsule and one of the rare house museums that actually remains largely the same as when the famous resident lived there. I still receive their email newsletters, and I was delighted to read their letter today that mentioned an Emily Dickinson inspired garden at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. It’s a beautiful evocation of the natural imagery Dickinson used in her poetry, and I wish I had tickets to the show so that I could see it in the flesh. – Rachel
