Wicked Plants was marvelous! See my review for Nashville Public Library:
Loved 'Wicked Plants'! I literally couldn't put it down. It was fun to read and very informative as well. Especially I liked the historical information supporting the plant descriptions. I will seek out your other books soon. THANK YOU!
A book about earthworms! Perfect for my dad for Father's Day. He is extremely hard to please with gifts. The best I have ever done is ladybugs for his garden. Hopefully, this will top the ladybugs. I saw your interview on the Amazon blog the other day. Congratulations!
I will be glad to accept you as my friend. It has been very dry here in Northern Indiana(no rain this summer).I water just enough to keep my flowers from dying.
I must tell you that in the fall of 1997. I was in Santa Cruz we just stopped for a short break at the beach on our way to Livermore. When you wrote about the amusment park in your book I realized that it was just possible that I was near the home that you had bought.It makes reading so much more interesting when a person can relate to the surroundings. I also garden and enjoyed [From the Ground Up]. Do you still have time to garden with all the writting you do?
Hi Amy, thanks for adding me to your friends. I too have loved From the Ground Up for a long time. I read it twice. I still have not started my garden though. Maybe next year! :)
Thank you for adding me to your friends! I am excited to have you do so as I have loved your book From the Ground Up for the longest time.
