Witty informative and fun Mrs Greenthumbs proves that Cassandra Danz is to flower gardening what the Fru A little while ago I talked about the virtues of hauling home oodles of books from the public library It s a super way to explore a new hobby in a cheap and satisfying way One of the things I m always on the lookout for are fabulous authors whose voices speak to me And I found just that in the books by Cassandra DanzNow when I first picked up Mrs Greenthumbs Plows Ahead Five Steps to the Drop Dead Gorgeous Garden of Your Dreams I glanced half heartedly at the cover Surely this frumpy lady in an 80s style dress could teach me nothing about gardening But oh how wrong I was Not only did she teach me gardening know how but she made me understand it I couldn t believe it All my life I ve been looking for a gardening book to explain just how to make a garden in a way that I could understand She articulated my needs and explained just exactly how to meet them I was amazed And I was convertedI set about to acuire all the books that were written by this fabulous female gardener And that s when I discovered to horribly sad news Cassandra Danz the person who finally made me see the gardening light died at age 55 from breast cancer I was crushed How devastating that such a lively energetic person could succumb to such a horrible disease Damned unfair And I m not the only one who misses this enthusiastic personality I was pretty bummed that just when I d found the perfect gardener s voice to guide me through my horticultural adventure she was snatched awayWhat makes me love her books so much Her voice Her style of writing is uite conversational It s a lot like a blog really She talks to her reader as if we re sitting together chatting over a cup of coffee And she s funny too Oh yes friends she is indeed funny We re talking Stephanie Plum funny hereI never thought I d ever laugh out loud at a gardening book I thought the only kind in existence were boring lecture type books that extolled the virtues of plants using horribly boring black and white charts You know the ones I mean the kind that state you must do it this way or else Or else what I always wondered Or else you ll come over to my house and march into my backyard and set the place on fire I always wonderedBut Mrs Greenthumbs changed all that She changed my whole gardening information world She made it ok not to have all the answers She made it ok to make mistakes She made it ok to go ahead and try my hand at gardening even though I didn t know everything All those other books put the fear into me that I had to memorize all that stuff so I would know it all and avoid mistakes Oh the horror of mistakesI think the reason I didn t get serious about gardening before was because I never felt I knew enough not to make mistakes But gosh darn folks ya know what Everyone makes mistakes And we new gardeners are bound to Mrs Greenthumbs made me realize those things And for that I will forever be grateful So thank you Cassandra for all of your words of wisdom and laugh out loud funniness that helped set me on my gardening path Even though you ve gone to the great big mulch pile in the sky I take my sun hat off to you and will plant a fluffy flower in your honor

Gal Gourmet is to cooking More like an experienced neighbor than a gardening authority she offers advice A little dated this book was a great introduction to creating your own garden and the kind of things to keep in mind as put your own together The book is organized by month with type of activities best associated with each month weeding planting paving etc Readers can pick out what advice works best or is most pertinent to them and you treat it as a handbook than as a hard and fast rules Her advice is great and easy to follow with a just a dash of corny humor I would definitely recommend it to people looking for an easy introduction to the topic that can be used as needed
