"The Gardener's Eye" is Allen Lacy's third compendium of essays on 'all things' garden. It is delightful and essential reading for the 'intermediate' gardener who wants to learn more about the story of plants and flowers, gardeners, and gardens or any gardener who wants good bedside reading this winter.
Professor Lacy, now retired, was the garden writer for the "New York Times" and taught philosophy at Stockton State College in New Jersey so we are deliciously served up a buffet of of garden tidbits, from the 'Astilbes of Georg Arends' to 'the Spring Orgy of Azaleas and Dogwoods', all spiced with philosophical anecdote.
If you are interested in developing a keen sense of what makes a great gardener, put Allen Lacy's books on your reading list.
