Posted on

Elizabeth Lawrence, Gardens in Winter

Readers of Lawrence’s books and garden columns came to know her gardening friends as if they were characters in a long-running radio drama.  Lawrence herself often said that she knew many gardens as well as she did her own.  Some from the past, she explained to readers of  The Little Bulbs, “still bloom in my mind.”  “Gardening, reading about gardening, and writing about gardening are all one,” she explained.  “No one can garden alone.”
