Weeds and Wildflowers – Alice Oswald


Weeds and Wild Flowers is a magical meeting of the poems of Alice Oswald and the etchings of Jessica Greenman. Within its pages everyday flora take on an extraordinary life, jostling tragically at times, at times comically, for a foothold in a busying world. Stunningly visualised and skilfully animated, this imaginative collaboration beckons us toward a landscape of botanical characters, and invites us to see ourselves among them.

As featured in Wordsworth Grasmere Cafe’s spring 2024 Loose Leaf Poetry activity, alongside the works of the Wordsworths, and Richard Mabey’s ‘Weeds: The Story of Outlaw Plants’.
