A Blessing of Toads : A Gardener's Guide to Living with Nature
Since the very first issue of "Country Living Gardener," writer, artist and naturalist Sharon Lovejoy has created the award-winning "Heart's Ease" column for the magazine. Through this collection of delightful essays and beautiful illustrations, she shares with her readers the boundless joys of a country garden. Lovejoy has chosen to focus on animal life in the garden, 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."
