The first gardening book I read was May Sarton's Journal of Solitude. It isn't really about gardening, but, she was a passionate gardener living in Maine, and I noted that she had a gardener that carried out her master plan gardens.
I loved Onward and Upward in the Garden by Katharine S. White (E.B.'s wife) and also loved The 3,000 Mile Garden by Leslie Land (great name, huh.) The Lavender Lover's Handbook by Sarah Baden gives me ideas on adding to my collection of lavender plants.
Good friends, Bonnie and Scott Rose are master gardeners and Scott makes his living as a horticulturist. I look forward to seeing their new garden in Michigan. I enjoy walking through Paulette's small city garden...it suits her personality and I think that is why I love it so.
Ron put fairy lights in our trees and along our fences and the view at night is just as enchanting as the daytime. Come join us anytime for a walk about-it really only takes a few minutes, that is, unless you stop to smell the roses!
