Being a gardener is about your imagination, memories, dreams, and life experiences made tangible.

Take heart from the ways in which she finds both joy and solace through gardening and inspiration from the wisdom she has found in the work of lauded authors, designers, and thinkers, including Cicero, Gertrude Jekyll, Jamaica Kincaid, and Michael Pollan.
