Festival of the Trees 57: an embarassment of riches

The 57th edition of the Festival of the Trees is out! True to her blog-name, Rebecca in the Woods guides us through a veritable forest of links — 36 in all. But they are so well organized, and Rebecca’s connective prose so smooth, I didn’t realize there were that many until I got to the end of the post.

I’ll be honest: in my hurry to get this announcement out, I haven’t been able to visit every linked blog post and article yet. But a few that have entranced me already include a history lesson on the 500-year-old Sully trees of France, with a portrait of one of the survivors; an illustrated tutorial from a Dutch artist on how to weave living sculptures out of willows; and a fascinating and learned essay on “A Linguistic Permaculture of the Oak.” But that’s just me. Go visit Rebecca in the Woods and find your own favorites!

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several small, odd books, including Breakdown: Banjo Poems, Words on the Street: An Inaction Comic, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my literary blog Via Negativa. I'm the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a webzine showcasing videopoetry and poetry film. And I've been a dedicated if somewhat unorthodox homebrewer for more than 20 years.
