Sadly I was a little disappointed, after reading a couple of your books. I wanted to buy this one, so I could find out the names of all the succulents, you planted into a square container!!! But I couldn't even find the names, as they were not allowed to be seen from page 204 / 208. I really think if you cared about all your fans, you could @ least let us look @ the names in your large container. I have followed you for years, & I know it takes a year to get photographs, & a year to write the book etc., but sometimes it would be nice just to show your fans, the names of the plants, you had planted in large container. I'm sorry to say that I think this is, a little selfish on your behalf Debra Lee, it's not like you were going to miss out on any money, & sometimes it's nice just to be kind to your fans
