I bought this book in 1995, kept it in sight on an end-table shelf, picked it up periodically to browse through a chapter or admire the gorgeous photography, and finally read it through over the past month. One is welcomed into the authors' lives and their love affair with their corner of heaven on earth. I'm ready for a pilgrimage to North Hill and want to read their other works, but at a quicker pace!

These guys are my polar opposites in character and demeanor (who talks like that?!), but they sure know plants and, from the photos, can grow just about anything. This is NOT a book for hopeful or amateur gardeners, but could be a good read for pretentious ones...
