I stumbled across this reprint of an article from a 1917 gardening magazine entitled "Evolution of my Garden" written by Mrs Greenleaf Clarke and even with no photos, it is a delight to read and so easy to picture what a lovely cottage garden she had. Wonder if that was her real name or a pen name? Anyway, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Has a wonderful idea on how to grow sweet peas too.

She had a great idea for the sweet peas! I bet her garden was lovely.

I think it's kind of stuck that way - looks like someone kind of scanned it in weird.

Did anyone else like that front cover illustration? Lovely...

Glad to see you posting, Lincolnitess - unless I've been missing them, it's been a while, eh?

Oh, duh, I get it. It's three columns. Fascinating. I was trying to read it straight across from left to right. One can almost visualize it, and I do like her sweet pea idea! I now find I am writing rather differently, and must--quickly now!--haste to Plantfiles to look up a great many things.

When I started to read the article it all seemed familiar, so I looked back at the thread and saw it was started 11/15/2006 and then looked at the number of viewers. I think I must have been one of them. Linconitess, I hope you're still here in DG to see how many people you've reached. Thank you again.
