I am an avid gardener who is interested in the way children view the world. My love for writing fueled my passion to write The Garden.
My education includes a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and creative writing and a Masters degree in Publication Design. I taught digital photography workshops at the University of Baltimore, Daytona Beach Community College and Flagler County Adult Education in Florida. My abilities and skills to write and lay-out books have enabled me to self-publish and sell thousands of how-to books to students and photographers.
I discovered hollyhocks grow profusely in northern Florida. Plant the seeds in the fall and you can expect blooms in March. Hollyhocks cross-pollinate, so I suggest you gather and plant the harvested seeds. You will be pleasantly surprised the following year when the plants produce new blooms consisting of a variation of colors and shapes.
Think of enjoying your favorite flowers all year around. Well, preserving flowers and leaves is easier than you might imagine. The necessary ingredients can be found in your local grocery store and requires little time and money. I will share with you my perfected method of preserving both the color and the shape of your favorite flowers and leaves.

A true story about a little boy named Jonah who enjoys a neighbor's vegetable garden. Jonah learns the art of picking vegetables. He also eats the fresh vegetables and is delighted to learn that they taste better than the vegetables at the grocery store. I would recommend this book to parents and children alike.
