EAGC will be co-sponsoring a talk and book signing by Thomas Mickey, a writer from Rye, on his new book America’s Romance with the English Garden that came out in May. This event will take place at the Water Street Book Store in Exeter on Tuesday, July 9 at 7:00.
The author is a communication professor, master gardener and landscape designer. In his book he tells the story of how nineteenth century American seed and nursery catalogs sold us the English garden. To read an excerpt from the book, click here on the American Gardening website.
Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun
If the sun don’t come, you get a tan
From standing in the English rain
