I really enjoy Nichols and his attitude toward gardening, which is a highly stylized one. I have no idea what most of the plants he talks about are, but it scarcely matters. He is an accomplished writer with a good sense of wry humor and a perfectionist as regards all his domestic surroundings.

His love of the garden—and distrust of many of his neighbors—comes through. He's gay and does not come out in the books. This was made a big deal of when I posted about him on Garden Rant, but I don't see

Nichols is a witty writer and can write more beautiful prose about a flower than anyone I've read. But I enjoy his books about redoing his homes more than this book.

Yet another wonderful little book on gardening. I would love to read some of his fiction if it were still in print.

“A garden without cats, it will be generally agreed, can scarcely deserve to be called a garden at all...much of the magic of the heather beds would vanish if, as we bent over them, there was no chance that we might hear a faint rustle among the blossoms, and find ourselves staring into a pair of sleepy green eyes.” 10 likes
