Isn't that the truth. I too have a picture in it. I felt the same way about how I would not have been tempted to buy it thinking that I was going to incorporate more shrubs into my garden this year but I now have a list of perennials I also want to add. Ha... It is a book full of inspiration.

Lisa — When i saw the names of all the gardeners/photographers in the back of the book who I know, I went looking for everyone's photo. I loved your combo. I had Honorine Jobert in my first garden. I planted her in this garden but she turned out to be a pink variety and I've never replaced her. She is such a beauty.


It is a wonderful book for sure, full of great combinations. I was also excited to receive my copy and agree that it might be something I would pass up if it hadn't arrived in the mail. It's chock full of terrific ideas and I'm glad to have it for inspiration (stealing ideas!)

Peter — Clearly we are all realizing we still have lots to learn (or steal!).

The point you made about your photo inclusion seeming to point out that you know what you're doing - but - you go to Nan's blog to steal ideas, well...isn't that what gardening is all about? And why we love tours, and blogs, and books. As you and Peter point out above we're all borrowing all the time.

Also excellent point Nan makes about photography lying. So true...

Nice! Congratulations. Of course you know what you're doing. I might have to pick up a copy. A gardener can never have too many garden books!


I was excited to receive the book and thrilled Nancy used one of my photos.I'm afraid mine was a happy accident as I don't really put a lot of thought into what plants come and go in my garden.With the book in hand I think I might try a little harder. After all in a large garden one good combination is not enough.
