Abstract:

Mingled in a seasonal format are Heriteau's personal reminiscences combined with all sorts of ideas for floral displays. In recollecting her love of flowers, she conjures up warm memories of childhood associated with loving relatives and valuable lessons learned while gardening across her lifetime--from villages in France to Vermont, Cape Cod, and beyond. Heriteau's suggestions embrace distinctive approaches to nurturing a gardener's instinctive desire to putter, regardless of the season. Included here are recipes for potpourri, instructions for making simple bouquets of posies (and lavish centerpieces) for the home, and tips on propagating flowering plants, forcing bulbs, and creating a braided hibiscus tree. The many other musings Heriteau shares will surely prove inspirational for avid gardeners. ~--Alice Joyce.
