A magical book of adventures and appreciations written and illustrated by the author of "e;Roots, Shoots, Buckets & Boots"e; this award-winning title was published by a small press in Colorado in 1991. The reviews say it all: A fetching primer on gardening for children. . . . Irresistible (The Smithsonian). What child, or indeed adult, would not be delighted? "e;Lovejoy's"e; recollections are wonderful, as are the illustrations (Victoria).
Celebrating the lore of the garden and the joy of interacting with nature, "e;Sunflower Houses"e; is a unique garden lover's miscellany, a collection of memories, poems, activities, garden plans, crafts, botanical riddles, stories, games, and planting projects. There are inspirations for a Floral Clock Garden, A Child's Own Rainbow, Faerie Tea Parties, and, of course, the Sunflower House. Plus, from garden lovers, stories of favorite flowers. Throughout are the artist's warm and appealing watercolors of a life in gardening remembered.
