Garden Lunacy: A Growing Concern
Garden Lunacy: A Growing Concern is a garden book unlike any you've ever read: It's not about plants, it's not about gardens, and it's not about how to garden. It's a hysterical book about gardeners… especially the loony one Art Wolk's book is an irreverent take on the world of horticulture. You'll laugh out loud as he exposes the difficult co-existence between gardeners and non-gardeners, and unearths the foibles, fears, joys, and calamities common to all tillers of the soil.Garden Lunacy contains countless examples of the unique ways in which gardeners view their universe: You often see plants first and humans last. You refuse to go on vacation during the planting season. You view a field of wildflowers as the center of the cosmos, while non-gardeners view it as the middle of nowhere. You see a deer as a bona fide backyard terrorist; they see Bambi.In a continuous stream of colorful scenes, you'll be taken into a world inhabited by gardeners of all levels, from non-gardening “gardeners” to eccentric, covetous, and compulsive gardeners.Most of all, you'll burst out laughing as Wolk shares his views on horticulture and describes his own oddball behavior as a gardener, lecturer, writer, photographer, and flower show exhibitor. From his vantage point as a lifelong gardener and horticultural voyeur, he gives gardeners an unforgettably accurate look at their domain.
