    Thanks, Robin! It’s always nice to get a plug from a good friend who happens to be a good writer, too. Mrs. Feeny thanks you as well. They put her drought tolerant garden in just in time!!

    Every kid must have had a meany meany Mrs. Feeny in their neighborhood. I did . . . we stole her kumquats. Too bad I didn’t profit from her skills, like the beautifully illustrated kids did in this book. Sandy Baker is a prolific writer, who is willing to share her gardening secrets in an entertaining and humorous way.
