dulcyBook Signing: Through the Seasons with Dulcy - with Ted Mahar

As popular garden columnist Dulcy Mahar well knew, a garden is a year-round passion, and each season brings opportunities to experience the space in new ways. THROUGH THE SEASONS WITH DULCY (Carpe Diem Books, Oct. 4, 2014) collects 140 of the over 1100 columns she wrote during her 22-year career with The Oregonian and organizes them by season, giving readers the opportunity to see how gardens, as well as gardeners, change over time. In an informal, yet knowledgeable and witty style, she guides the reader through the annual — and perennial — cycles of the gardening life. The text is accompanied by over 190 beautifully detailed photographs from Dulcy’s garden in Portland’s Garthwick neighborhood that bring her words to full bloom.
