Review
I devoured it in a single sitting, front page to last, and I ll wager that many, many others have done so before me. Allen Lacy --Allen Lacy

Richardson Wright s resonant meditations on everything from the staking of lilies to the appreciation of nineteenth-century prints of roses are pithy, often amusing, and are marvelously distilled from his life as a master editor and gardener. They will delight a generation that never knew him. Henry Mitchell, The Washington Post --Henry Mitchell, The Washington Post
