The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Cloisters Museum has a blog dedicated to its plants and gardens, The Medieval Garden Enclosed. The Cloisters houses the museum's medieval European art and architecture collection, and the accompanying gardens replicate the botany of the era. Posts range in subject matter from biblical references to pomegranates to how to get rid of the pesky powdery mildew on your winter rosemary. Photography of the greenery in the garden is often paired with relevant medieval artwork, and it's all very fascinating, in a dry, intellectual way.
