From THE LANDSCAPES OF ANNE OF GREEN GABLES by Catherine Reid: “By 1900, most of the original forests were gone....In a reversal of the earlier land-clearing trend, about half of the island is forested today, much of it in trees that are often young and evenly aged. On a walk through the woods, it’s not unusual to find daylilies and lilacs that mark an abandoned homestead, and apple trees that bear fruit in the middle of a new pine forest.

“Given these cyclical, inevitable ch...anges, it's remarkable that the sites devoted to keeping Anne Shirley’s story alive—the house and grounds of Green Gables, the adjoining homesite, and sites of Montgomery's adult life—can maintain their timeless feel. The custodians of these places—the National Park Service and the descendants of the Macneill and Campbell families—have worked wonders in preserving these windows into the lives and the land of Anne’s Avonlea.”

I'm especially fond of the fact that your offer such a wide range of titles, including plant-specific books and textbooks - not only general gardening books. I wish it were possible to post a photo t...o your page, but I realize you'd likely be overwhelmed. See More
