Mike Dillon has edited a beautiful book about a northwest garden situated on Queen Anne in “Notes from the Garden – Creating A Pacific Northwest Sanctuary”. Madeleine Wilde wrote ‘garden’ columns for the Queen Anne-Magnolia newspaper for nearly 2 decades. She wrote of her garden, but also the trees and special sites in the neighborhoods. We can learn so much about the natural flora of our northwest, along with insights about what and when to plant, and how to properly tend to vegetation. These columns are beautifully written and enjoyable just as stories, but there’s so much gardening information and guidance to be found in this wonderful book.
