Beverly Nichols, Gardener, Author, Philosopher

Reading Beverly Nichols' garden books

has become a winter tradition for me.

For those of you who haven't yet stumbled across these treasures,

you're in for a treat.

Part practical knowledge, part philosophy,

and part hysterical humor,

they are in a genre all their own.

Doesn't this map make you want to grab some graph paper

and plan out a new garden?

His books have a way of livening up the soggy, cold winter months,

especially as he had a passion for winter blossoms,

always trying to come up with more to add to his collection.

Personally, I'm perfectly content to take a couple months

off from the garden,

drink a cup or two of tea,

and read about winter flowers instead,

graph paper close at hand.
