It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
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. :)
