Fletcher Moss Botanical Garden

Fletcher Moss Botanical Garden (known locally as Fletcher Moss) is situated in Didsbury, Manchester, England, between the River Mersey and Stenner Woods which many people lived near by.

The park is named after local Alderman Fletcher Moss, who donated the park to the city of Manchester in 1919. It is part botanical garden and part wildlife habitat, but also offers recreational facilities such as tennis courts, rugby and football pitches and a cafe.

Famous quotes containing the words garden, botanical, fletcher and/or moss:

    He had the oaks for heating and for light.
    He had a hen, he had a pig in sight.
    He had a well, he had the rain to catch.
    He had a ten-by-twenty garden patch.
    Nor did he lack for common entertainment.
    That I assume was what our passing train meant.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Evolution was all over my chldhood, walks abroad with an evolutionist and the world was full of evolution, biological and botanical evolution.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    Come, all sad and solemn shows,
    That are quick-eyed Pleasure’s foes!
    We convent nought else but woes,
    We convent nought else but woes.
    —John Fletcher (1579–1625)

    What is this beast, she thought,
    with muscles on his arms
    like a bag of snakes?
    What is this moss on his legs?
    What prickly plant grows on his cheeks?
    What is this voice as deep as a dog?
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
