Introduction
Blogging is a joy - a total extravagance. Here I can explore endless curiosities - blogs combine written & image primary sources + narratives looking at history & women & gardens. Blog entries scour history, art, nature, & everyday life for unique perspectives, uncommon grace, & unexpected insights.  

This is a purely educational blog. Images & essays in my blogs cluster around some chronological, biographical, social, cultural, or academic theme. Because I am a boring, old historian I am interested in comparing & contrasting & looking at change over time. I try to choose images that justify their inclusion on aesthetic grounds. I do not offer complete image credit lines or footnotes, hoping to entice blog visitors to begin researching for themselves. (Graded enough papers in grad school to know that some are tempted to borrow.)
