I can't quite believe it's over - though I have promised to go back to the garden later this summer, to sit under a tree again and see if any more poems might arrive in my notebook. Or if not, to check how the insects are getting on in the Insect Mansion!
The poems on postcards were a sell-out success (an idea I picked up from fellow poets-in-residence in other gardens).
In the end the readings were impromptu, whenever there were enough people around who'd said they'd like to hear some poems. Amazingly, quite a few did! And several people brought their own poems along to show me, too.
Now for a quick snooze. Just for a few moments...
