    Hello! I stumbled on this blog as it somehow was linked to something I’d written about Naples… not sure how! But I was interested and did a little search – I was surprised to find no mention of Rousseau’s ‘Reveries du Promeneur Solitaire’. For a literary approach to botany, it’s truly wonderful.
