Description

Sooner or later, every older gardener faces a similar challenge. At some point, we all find ourselves asking 'If I can't get out there and dig, plant, and prune as I used to, what am I going to do'? The garden has been an everyday part of Sydney Eddison's life for over forty years. It has witnessed the changing of seasons, her greatest joys, and her deepest sorrows. The garden and the gardener have aged and changed together. "Gardening for a Lifetime" is a touching memoir about having to scale back after widowhood and painful joints made it impossible to keep up with a large country garden. Intermixing personal experience with practical gardening tips, Eddison has written an encouraging road map for accepting and embracing a new and simpler way of gardening. Elegant black and white illustrations evoke Eddison's everyday joy, sorrow, and contentment in the garden. Gentle, personable, and practical, "Gardening for a Lifetime" helps transform gardening from a list of daunting chores into the rewarding, joy-filled activity it was meant to be.
