This is at once the notebook of a woman who has won international acclaim for her flower arrangements and an amateur who started at scratch and knows the vicissitudes of gardening. Only last year she admits to failure due to weed killer and the wrong placement of beds. A book that combines charm, information, suggestions and even recipes for salads and new vegetables with which to vary our menus. Month by month we travel through the year with this amazingly gifted woman who decorated Buckingham palace, St. Paul's Cathedral, deb parties, small luncheons or country cottages in her stride, raising most of the flowers, greens and trimmings on her own place and never seems to run low on ideas or originality. Garden clubs and gardeners everywhere hang on her words. They'll delight in this personal and informal opportunity to spend a year in her garden.
