Poetry of Plants

If you're going to be in southeast Texas this weekend, head on over to Shangri La Botanical Gardens & Nature Center for their "Poetry of Plants" day. Part of their "Saturday Adventure Series", October 6, 2012 is for those with a heart or eye for poetry.

Let the works of poets spark your own writing experience. Using orchids as inspiration, learn about and write your own Orchid Haiku. This program, presented by Amanda Noble, will start and end in the lab and includes a stroll through the orchid greenhouse. Brave participants might even share their poetry.

The event is intended for adults and children 10 years of age and older. This adventure series marks the beginning of the week long "Orchid Festival" and starts at 9:30 a.m.

For more information about this or other events hosted in the gardens, please visit the Shangri La website.

HAPPY WRITING!

Some more "flowery" poetry? Sounds good. I'll wait and see your results.
