A Patchwork Garden is the story of the development of a garden...and a gardener...from Eddison's first tentative attempts to subdue eight acres of stubborn New Englad landscape into perennial borders to her widening interest in daylilies, rock gardening, and woodland gardening. Descriptions of various friends who have helped and instructed her along the way lace the narrative; they are the "patches" in her patchwork garden. Beginning and experienced gardeners will learn from and appreciate this unassuming woman who is now widely known as a daylily expert.***One of my favorites. I love memoir type books, especially about fellow gardeners. I call them "cozy reads" and the people that write them stay with you forever...almost as if you know them as a good friend. Can you ask for more?
