An Apology So many interesting books have been published of late about gardens that it would seem as if the subject were well nigh exhausted.

Notwithstanding that this is the general opinion, one well versed in garden-lore has sensibly written: As there must be many gardeners, so there must be


books. There must be books for different persons and different ideals.

Hence, the compiler of this little volume does not offer an apology to the public for presenting it, but rather to the neighbours whose attractive gardens she has entered without an invitation, and for plucking a choice posy now and then without permission.
