Biggar Poetry Garden

Biggar Poetry Garden is at the top end of the High Street in Biggar, a market town in South Lanarkshire. The Garden has been created by Biggar Museums Trust Brownsbank Committee in partnership with the Biggar Public Art Group and South Lanarkshire Council. There are plaques around the garden with quotations from Scottish poems about plants, alongside the plants to which they refer. The Poetry Garden also containes display boards of poetry, including poetry from a range of Scottish poets. I'm delighted to have just found out that some of my poetry will be featured in the display boards for three months starting from June this year!

As ever, text in red takes you to other webpages, where you can find out more.

Poet, that's so cool! One of mine is going up in June too.
If you plan a visiting day when yours are up, let me know and we could meet up.
