I am in love with Henry Mitchell. We are perfect for each other. Not only do we agree on almost everything, from the value of Japanese Honeysuckle to the wisdom of saving a wasp's life, (if the chance offers itself) but we both understand that gardening is more about "letting go" into the mystery, than about imposing some sort of geometric, efficient, labor-saving, cost-effective control over nature.

If you enjoy life, you will enjoy this book. If you are an old sourpuss who doesn't want anything to disturb your equanimity, I would suggest you go elsewhere for your entertainment, somewhere dark, dreary, and full of rules. There are many many gardening books written just for you, but I shall not name them here.
