As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:

Copy of Grow That #Garden Library (3)

Today's book recommendation:  Flowering Earth by Donald Culross Peattie 
 
The Hartford Times said this about Peattie's masterpiece:

"Here is Mr. Peattie at his superb best.... [H]e makes the story of botany and its pursuit as fascinating to the reader as it is to him, and the reading of it a delight."
 
Peattie's book was first published in 1939. The book is part of natural history, part biography, and part philosophical reflection.

Peattie's voice is warm and lyrical; the voice of a poet.

"If you have a garden, a gardening podcast, and a library,
you have everything you need."
