About this book

Through this collection of delightful essays and beautiful illustrations, long-time contributor to Country Living Gardner Sharon Lovejoy shares the boundless joys of an American country garden. Lovejoy has chosen to focus on the natural world to be found just outside the door, including hummingbirds, caterpillars, and dragonflies, but her informative and witty prose also covers traditional plant care. The very titles of her sketches convey pleasure in the vibrant country landscape and the life that teems within it: "The Bumble Bee Rumba", "Faeries in the Fuschias (sphinx moths)", "Holiday Feasts for the Birds and the Beasts", and "Conversations with Sunflowers". This compilation truly is-to borrow another of her titles-"Something to Crow About."
