An Outstanding First Effort

Ms. Stewart uses a combination of wit and wisdom to bring her garden to life in the minds of the reader. You can see her archenemies - the snails and the Oxalis, and share in her triumphs as her garden grows in sometimes unexpected ways. I thoroughly enjoyed the year ...

I thoroughly enjoyed the year she shared with me, and I hope there will be another installment so we can share her next adventure.

    charming

    A lovely little book. I don't even like gardening (bugs and dirt-yuck), but really enjoyed the story. It was charming, informative and a true love story about a woman and her garden. You will like spending time with this author, her husband and her cats in her seaside garden.
