I am really bothered by the fact that everyone else seems to love the book for February. I just can't get into it... I have a short attention span and I am frustrated that I cannot stay interested in this book-all the other Garden Bloggers are raving about it! I am a simple-minded garden book reader. There are no pictures in this garden book, so I am lost!!
It really has very little to do with gardening and more about the wholesale tulip man and sick mothers who require three full-time nurses. Every once in a while, it seems like they talk about what's blooming and what they've ordered, but I haven't gotten that far in, so I should try to muck it thru. Most bothersome is the style of the letters. They are in that overly-polite language of the turn of the century, even though the letters are written in the 50's. So far, I have learned absolutely nothing. Last night was the first time a name was mentioned that I thought might be interesting-Gertrude Jekyll.
We'll see where that leads!
