This review is from: Gardening for a Lifetime: How to Garden Wiser as You Grow Older (Hardcover)
I've read all of Sydney's books and recommend them highly to anyone who loves to garden and appreciates what a hands-on expert with a wonderfully engaging writing style is happy to share. Sydney's books are about gardening and life, and this book deals with some of the realities we aging gardeners face. I was lucky enough to visit her garden a decade ago and remember the perfection of her amazing perennial bed and the charm of her primrose path. When I blanched at the inadequacy of my gardening efforts in comparison to her paradise, she smiled, and remarked that "this is not a garden, this is my life's work." As Sydney has aged, her garden and her perspective have evolved. But what hasn't changed is her wonderfully warm and very practical account of her life in her garden.
