Bookshelf: The Garden Tourist/Gardens to Visit:

The Real Garden Road Trip
Bradbury & Maddocks

This book is a great read!! These two ladies go from one end of Canada to the other in their search for real gardeners...and they find them. Some are in the most surprising places..but they all are owned by real people who love to garden and love to share.

I had a chance, by reading this book, to place myself in the various gardens, listen to the gardeners sharing their experiences in their areas and come away happy to have 'met' them. I have to admit, I had a real hard time putting this book down after finishing it...I wanted to do the same! travel and meet more gardeners!

I loved the quote "In the garden, the world pushes back and it's only as large as whatever you hold in your hand" These are words any real gardener understands and cherishes...this book is good for your soul.
