How wonderful to see Dede Petri, the President of the Garden Club of America, give this nice shout out about my new book in her email newsletter to all the members of the GCA across the country! She was so thoughtful to call me first to give me an alert about this and even more generous to do this. I was happy to see the book of my admired friend, Louise Wrinkle also praised. It is a beautiful book recounting the evolution of her own garden in Alabama with magnificent photographs to illustrate the story. I hope to be able to see her garden this March when I have been asked to give a talk for the Birmingham Botanic Garden on March 7. I have never been to Alabama before, so look forward to going, and feel honored to be invited.
