Description
The author of Breaking Ground and Duck Hill Journal as well as a contributor to House & Garden and House Beautiful, garden designer Page Dickey writes here of the pitfalls, challenges, successes, and myriad pleasures of the 29-year-long process of creating Duck Hill, her own remarkable garden in upstate New York. Dickey shares her very personal views on what contributes to a garden's success—structure, fragrance, the play of light and shadow, patterns and textures, and multiseasonal plants.

"[The book] is divided into a series of short essays on a wide range of subjects, each building on the others until a full picture of the garden, and the gardener's life, emerges. Dickey writes about learning to share the garden with a new plant-loving husband and their ideas for simplifying the garden as they grow older. In her view, a garden, at its best, is like the embroidery of the book's title: 'the results of a passion, our joyous individual efforts of expression in color, pattern, and texture, woven with leaves and flowers, in partnership with nature'."—Country Gardens

"A real delight, conveying Page Dickey's passion for gardening as well as the hard graft and blossoming progress of the garden at Duck Hill. A true inspiration, and a beautifully written book."—Jenny Uglow
