Since I started the blog I've been collecting information to use in posts. The collection grows but there always seems to be something more urgent and immediate to write about. And the scraps of paper and notes on my computer nag at me, demanding recognition.
In an attempt to stop their nagging, I will list some of them in this post and then dispose of them - mentally (hopefully), physically (probably) and emotionally (possibly).

2. The story of Elspeth Thompson, gardener and garden writer who committed suicide in 2010.
3. Roof gardens
4. The story of the garden of Alnwick Castle and the Duchess of Northumberland
5. Music inspired by gardens, e.g. Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on Greensleeves, Debussy's Gardens in the Rain and Delius' The Walk to Paradise Garden
6. Myths about the venomousness of Australian spiders
7. Attracting Australian native birds by planting native bird attracting plants
