As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
Today's book recommendation: Fletcher Steele, Landscape Architect: An Account of the Gardenmaker's Life, 1885-1971 by Robin S. Karson
Karson wrote this book back in 2003.
The cover shows Steele's signature work: The Blue Staircase.
The beginning of Karson's book includes Steele's most famous quote. He said,
"The chief vice in the garden is to be merely... pretty."
