I was recently interviewed for the Garden Monkey’s Celebrity Hijack series. When the mysterious (and totally hilarious) Garden Monkey contacted me about an interview I jumped on the chance because I knew it would be fun. This interview was an absolute joy to answer and a bit of a thinker too. Plus I got to swear a wee bit. You have no idea how hard I work to reign my potty mouth in on a daily basis. While you’re over there be sure to check out the previous interviews with some of the UK’s most famous gardeners. I love that almost everyone prefers the title “gardener” over “horticulturalist.”
Given my brand of humor it comes as no surprise that the two most interesting interviews I have conducted recently have come from UK publications.
Okay. I am sorry because it seems like every other post is just me tooting my own horn about some such nonsense but, really, I can’t believe this. I was just doing a search for something completely unrelated and by total chance came upon a recommendation of my book in the Spring 2007 newsletter of the David Suzuki Foundation!
I know this is ridiculously juvenile and someday I will come to regret both writing these words AND making it public (let’s not talk about the graphic) but LOOK — can you believe it because I sure can’t — the cover of my book sits on the same page as a picture of David Suzuki’s face! The little kid in me who grew up watching The Nature of Things has died and gone to heaven. The adult too.
