September 19 2010 In the Garden

One of the authors of our favorite gardening books, Wayne Winterrowd,
died yesterday.

With his partner Joe Eck, Winterrowd wrote "Our Life in Gardens", "Roses", "Living Seasonally", "A Year at North Hill", "Annuals for Connoisseurs", "Annuals and Tender Plants for North American Gardeners", as well as writing for garden magaines.

When you think about all the authors who inspired and taught us over the years, it's an amazing list of dedicated plant lovers who were willing to share their knowledge and experience.

So, I dedicate the photos I took of our garden this morning to those wonderful people from whom we have learned.

My garden would not be a tenth as satisfying as it is without
the generous help of garden writers.

So, thanks to them all.
