After weeks of editing it is finally here.
The first edition of the book was 188 pages (8.5″ x 11″ paper) but I soon realized that at that length, it would be too expensive to print. As painful and excruciating as it was, I ultimately cut it down to under 100 pages.
Who knew that the actual writing of the book would end up being the easiest part of this project?
But it is done. And I am super excited.
A quick synopsis of the book:
There are 20 chapters, each a different perennial that resides in my garden today. The chapters commence with a personal story that is tied to that particular plant. It then takes you through a photographic journey, spring through winter of that perennial with 1,000+ photos in all. While the flowering of each perennial is happily celebrated, I also include other aspects that too often go underappreciated: new spring foliage, spent blooms, seed heads and fall color.
For all of you who have been loyal readers over the years, please know that this is all new material and not a copy of old blog posts.
You can purchase the book here through Amazon.
Thank you all for your support over the years as this book wouldn’t have been written without you.
I am forever grateful.
Volume 2 will be out later this year.
