Vintage Wisconsin Gardens Author Lee Somerville in Green Bay
Author Lee Somerville will discuss her new book, Vintage Wisconsin Gardens: A History of Home Gardening
, at Barnes & Noble in Green Bay. She will also be available to sign copies of her book.
As Wisconsin's population moved from farmsteads into villages, towns and cities, the state saw a growing interest in gardening as a leisure activity and source of civic pride. In "Vintage Wisconsin Gardens," Somerville introduces readers to the region's ornamental gardens of the 19th and early 20th centuries, showcasing the "vernacular" gardens created by landscaping enthusiasts for their own use and pleasure.
