Garden Bloggers' Book Club
I can't say that I enjoyed "My Favorite Plant" entirely. It was very uneven. The essays by garden writers were wonderful. The one exception was the overly long selection from F Kingdon Ward, an English plant collector. I kept hoping he would fall off of the mountain and put me out of my misery. The essays by non-garden writers were boring. I'm not even going to comment on the poetry. I've never understood poetry. The typeface used in this book drove me batty. Sorry, I'm just not the artsy type. I will be gladly returning this volume to the library today.
On a happier note, Amazon.com has notified me that my order, consisting of the January and February selections, has been shipped. I am eagerly awaiting their arrival. I've heard nothing but praise from other gardening readers for both books.
