What a great story! Riddle's book is like an autobiography (well, I suppose it is) about his childhood in the South and his first garden in the Catskills. His description of his home and the garden there is heart-warming and a great read. He has fun with his garden (and the decor in it), but has a very keen knowlege of plants and design. The plants and plans are a boon to a beginning gardener like me, I like to see how other gardeners develop their ideas. One confession: thank God I've never grown cotoneaster! I too would surely have mispronounced it if I hadn't read this book. :)
