Home Ground, A Gardener's Miscellany by Allen Lacy.

As Lacy writes in the author's preface: "This book is about some of the plants I have lived with and loved (and a few that I have disliked or that did not return my affections ) over a lifetime of gardening that got underway in Irving, Texas during World War II, after I bit a teacher on the leg and was sentenced to do penance for this gross misdeed by working in an iris patch.  It is also about places where I have lived and gardened in the intervening years - the places that have been home ground to me. And it is about people. To garden is inescapably to be involved with other people, to be indebted."

In this collection of over sixty short pieces, Lacy considers at least as many subjects that of utmost interest to backyard horticulturists - especially those whose first love is flowers.

Home Ground, A Gardener's Miscellany is written by Allen Lacy and published by Farrar Straus Giroux.  This hardcover edition with dust jacket is dated 1984.  It has 259 pages and measures approximately 6" x 9 3/4". Some wear to dust jacket and some page discoloration from almost 40 years of age.

Packed with joyfully entertaining and enjoyable gardening tales, this is the perfect gift for that special gardener.
