About the Author:
Sharon Lovejoy is a botanist, educator and award-winning nature, gardening and children's book author and watercolor illustrator. She is also a part-time resident of Maine!
"The first...garden of my childhood is where I shared the world of nature with my grandmother. She knew that the surest way to destroy the enthusiasm of a young gardener was to dictate a steady regimen of rules and routine. Instead, we greeted each day as an adventure and learned to look for and expect miracles."
