    by Theodore James, Jr. Acclaimed garden author James and garden photographer Harry Haralambou take us on an enjoyable and enlightening tour of their gardens as they evolve through the seasons.

On this property they have put an Alpine, water, shade, perennial, Japanese, shrub, woodland and secret gardens. All come together beautifully to fulfill James' guiding concept that "a garden should be a series of events, spectacles, and occurrences that continue throughout the four seasons."

  5. A Time to Blossom

    A TIME TO BLOSSOM **sold out**

    Mothers, Daughters and Flowers. By Tova Martin. Photographs by Richard W. Brown. Brown's photography is exquisite, each photo a carefully arranged tableau evoking romanticized images of young girls, mothers and flowers. Everyone wears vintage clothing (from the 1800s, 40s and 50s). Martin's text is equally evocative as she reminisces about her own childhood and the special place flowers and her mother hold in it. We follow her through the seasons as she delivers May baskets, climbs apple trees, picks lilacs, makes hollyhock dolls, or hangs out in her neighbor Mrs. Logee's nearby greenhouse (lucky kid!). She also includes instructions for mother/daughter projects for the next generation. Hardcover 160 pp. Pub at $35.00 Learn More

  6. A Taste of Heritage

    A TASTE OF HERITAGE **sold out**

    by Alma Snell. What Emma Byler did in Plain and Happy Living (L182) for the Amish, Alma Snell has done for Western Indians. Snell, a crow Indian, relates the traditional wild plant knowledge, herbalism, historic and modern cooking traditions that she picked up throughout her life. She stared early, learning much from her grandmother, Pretty Shield, a midwife who lived from 1856 - 1944. When she met and married Bill Snell, an Assiniboine Indian, she discovered his tribes plant uses as well. The two lived on many western reservations and she continued to learn from each. Snell worked as a cook, so she avidly collected recipes. Her book is divided into two sections - food, and medicinal plants and healing. In the first, she provides numerous recipes for plants gathered in the wild, garden vegetables, fish, fowl, and game animals, along with traditional breads and beverages. Snell adapted the recipes to more practical methods of preparation for easy use. Her section on medicinal plants and healing is outstanding. She describes the plants and exactly how they are applied, with extensive narrative on her experiences using them. All her stories are from personal experience. She has used and administered every plant mentioned and cooked every recipe. This makes her book a truly unique treasure, no to be missed! Softcover 191pp Learn More
