  • Kenneth Helphand's book "Defiant Gardens: Making Gardens in Wartime" is on my to-read list.

  • That is really awesome. Thanks for the book suggestion, I'd never heard of it before.

    Btw, if you have a second check out my blog and the post on the veggie garden at the Cook County Jail.

  • My ideal hortus conclusus is inside my own head. Strangely, it would look exactly like your picture. Except for that giant guy in the middle acting like he owns the place.

  • This is fascinating - sounds like a really interesting book - I'd be interested to know if any of these defiant gardens survive or they are always "short-lived".
