Annie in Austin

I hope you don't mind if I comment on this older post, popped out by Google on a search for Jamaica Kincaid. I'm reading Jamaica Kincaid's 'My Garden Book' and was wondering if anyone else was reading it.

The name Pamela Wolfe is a sweet memory from my previous life in Illinois. My copy of her "Midwest Gardens" book is falling apart from its use in the years prior to 1999, and the title page bears an inscription from Pam, who was kind enough to sign my copy at a talk she gave.

I was lucky enough to visit a few of the gardens on tours, including 7 or 8 strolls through Trudi Temple's garden. Trudi was my inspiring angel back in Illinois!
