If you haven’t ever run across a copy of this charming magazine, this issue shows you all the reasons why it is so popular. Encouragement, humor, peace and a lot of fascinating characters, including the editor, Pat Stone, who gives away some information about himself. He’d rather be in his canoe than his garden?!
I like the story in this issue about ‘Johnny Lilyseed’ who plants daylilies here and there around his Massachusetts town, reminding me of our own local Daffodil Planter, who secretly planted daffodils along Rte 2 some years ago. Our springs get more beautiful every year, and Johnny’s plantings led him on to more and more plantings – and a friendship.
It is hard to tell you how much pleasure is enclosed between the covers of each issue. You can logon to their website for the story of how Green Prints came to be, a sampling of their stories, and subscription info. In celebration of their anniversary, they have also given me permission to print a story about one of my favorite subjects right here. Manure!
