>Words and Gardening


Looking graphically at words in history presents a new perspective on words. Above are four speeches shown as “Wordles.” The larger words are the most used words in these speeches. These speeches are represented:

Abraham Lincoln’s second inaugural address, March 4, 1865
Franklin D. Roosevelt’s inaugural address, March 4, 1933
Martin Luther King, August 28, 1963
Barack Obama’s inaugural address, January 29, 2009

Can you match the word pictures above with the person who gave the speech? If you click on the picture, you will be linked to a gallery that has the answer and larger images.

Today we pulled up the bush and sowed seeds of hope. What a great day for gardening!
