Books Info:

Mary's Meadow free pdf Excerpt from Mary's Meadow: And Letters From a Little Garden "Mary's Meadow" first appeared in the numbers of Aunt Judy's Magazine from November 1883, to March 1884. It was the last serial story which Mrs. Ewing wrote, and I believe the subject of it arose from the fact that in 1883, after having spent several years in moving from place to place, she went to live at Villa Ponente, Taunton, where she had a settled home with a garden, and was able to revert to the practical cultivation of flowers, which had been one of the favourite pursuits of her girlhood. The Game of the Earthly Paradise was received with great delight by the readers of the story- one family of children adopted the word "Mary-meadowing" to describe the work which they did towards beautifying hedges and bare places- and my sister received many letters of enquiry about the various plants mentioned in her tale. These she answered in the Correspondence columns of the Magazine, and in July 1884, it was suggested that a "Parkinson Society" should be formed, whose objects were "to search out and cultivate old garden flowers which have become scarce- to exchange seeds and plants- to plant waste places with hardy flowers- to circulate books on gardening amongst the Members-" and further, "to try to prevent the extermination of rare wild flowers, as well as of garden treasures." Reports of the Society, with correspondence on the exchanges of plants and books, and quaint local names of flowers, were given in the Magazine until it was brought to a close after Mrs. Ewing's death- but I am glad to say that the Society itself is still in existence, and any one who wishes to procure a copy of its Rules can do so by sending a stamped envelope to the Secretary, Miss Alice Sargant, 7, Belsize Grove, N. W. Miss Sargant was the originator of the scheme, so its management remains in the best possible hands, and Professor Oliver, of Kew Gardens, has consented to become President in Mrs. Ewing's place. She owed to him her first introduction to Paradisi in sole Paradisus terrestris, as well as many other kind acts of help on flower subjects. The "Letters from a Little Garden" were published in Aunt Judy's Magazine between November 1884, and February 1885, and as they, as well as "Mary's Meadow," were due to the interest which my sister was taking in the tending of her own Earthly Paradise, - they are inserted in this volume, although they were left unfinished when the writer was called away to be - "Fast in Thy Paradise, where no flower can wither!"
