Three years and several thousand miles later,my book will be published on September 18, 2018. In the beginning I assembled a list of about 100 gardens. When practicality took over from imagination, the list dropped to 65. Then to 55. I wrote 55 pieces but then my editor, may she be blessed, excised some of the weaker pieces and now it is a book about 50 contemporary gardens around the world. There were very few misadventures. An earthquake in New Zealand woke me up and scared me. The earth trembled and so did I.
But aside from a few excessive taxi fares, a little too much food, and too many awful movies on long-haul flights all went remarkably well. I traveled everywhere I could think of, connecting with brothers and sisters in the plant-loving world. I was treated kindly everywhere.
Here is a link to pre-order the book, should you be interested. https://www.amazon.com/Gardenlust-Botanical-Tour-Worlds-Gardens/dp/1604697970/ref=sr_1_8?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1527184870&sr=1-8
