Garden Bloggers' Book Club March Selection

Are we talking about March already? With today's snowfall, it is hard to think about spring or even imagine it. Everything is buried under a thick blanket of snow. But soon it will be March and so it is time to announce the March selection for the Garden Bloggers' Book Club.

There were many suggestions, but one in particular caught my eye, and though many books were considered, I kept coming back to this one , The Gardener's Year by Karel Capek.

Here's what M. Sinclair Stevens wrote when suggesting it:

"One of the funniest books and most observant books I've ever read about gardening ..."

That's good enough for me. It's now next on my reading list, right after I finish re-reading and writing about Two Gardeners: Katharine S. White and Elizabeth Lawrence - A Friendship in Letters edited by Emily Herring Wilson. (I'll be posting the February book club post on February 28th, so when you've posted your review, send me an email or a comment to let me know so I can include you.)

Capek, Karel, 1890-1938.

The era alone will make this interesting reading. Got mine on hold, thanks for the early notice!

You always suggest such wonderful books, and I need to start reading them! I was at B&N today and saw both of the ones mentioned here - maybe I'll go back and start reading. I love the suggestions.

ps The snow looks wonderful in the previous post - I do miss it.

Oh, I'm so happy to see the March selection because.........I've already read it. Several times. It's my all-time favorite gardening book.
