This book is the essence of Dulcy and her relationship with DTWG and her garden. I was lucky enough years ago to visit during one of her open gardens. As she led us around and answered questions, I was struck by her incredibly open, creative and relaxed (in spite of what she occasionally says in her columns) attitude about gardening.
Terrific book! I checked it out of the local library, but will buy copies for myself and a friend. She distills the essence of what a gardener must be - a person who thinks and tries to understand her relationships with her garden. And her knowledge of what Pacific Northwest gardening is all about is simply incredible.
I can't think of any other gardener here in the Pacific Northwest who had (and still has) such understanding and knowledge of our local conditions.

I haven't yet read the book. However, I read Dulcie in the Oregonian for years. She was a gifted writer and gardener and very witty. Ted Mahar I also followed in the Oregonian. I miss Dulcie's columns and look forward to reading her husbands book about her.
