A Southern Garden by Brand: The University of North Carolina Press
Product Description
The author believes gardening in the middle South, where seasons have no definite boundaries but merge imperceptibly, could and should be a year-round pleasure. She takes us through the cycle of seasons, telling which plants are most suitable to which season. The book includes tables giving blooming dates of over eight hundred varieties of plants which were recorded over a period of years.

Product Description
A legendary editor at The New Yorker during its first thirty-four years, Katharine S. White was also a great garden enthusiast. In March 1958 she began publishing her popular column, "Onward and Upward in the Garden." Her first column elicited loads of fan mail, but one letter in particular caught her attention. From Elizabeth Lawrence, a noted southern garden writer, it was filled with suggestions and encouragement. When Katharine wrote back her appreciation, she reported on her Maine garden and discussed the plants and books that interested her. Thus began a correspondence that would last for almost twenty years, until Katharine's death in 1977.

Two Gardeners is a collection of these luminous letters, edited and introduced by Emily Herring Wilson. The letters bring to life the unique epistolary friendship between two intelligent women, the "formidable" Mrs. White and the "shy" Miss Lawrence, both avid gardeners and readers, both at a stage of life when to make a new friend was rare indeed: when they first wrote to one another, Katharine was sixty-two, Elizabeth, fifty-four.

More than 150 letters went back and forth during the course of their correspondence, though Katharine and Elizabeth would meet face-to-face only once. Whether talking about gardens or books, friends or family, each held a special place in the other's life.

Illustrated with photographs of both Katharine White and Elizabeth Lawrence, their families, gardens, and houses, this book is a special treat for gardeners, literature lovers, and anyone who delights in reading about women's friendships.

William Johnson was a military commander during the French and Indian War (Seven Years’ War), had promoted the British settlement of the Mohawk Valley and trading with the Mohawk, and founded the community of Johnstown in Tryon County in the... Sir John Johnson, who assumed the office in 1771 at the age of 30, was the last Provincial Grand Master of Masons in the colonies of Province of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. In 1774 at his father’s death, Johnson succeeded to the baronetcy and inherited his father’s title and extensive estates, making him a wealthy landowner. Johnson’s parents, Catherine Weissenberg and Sir William Johnson were never married and so he was Baptised John Wysen Bergh by Rev. Henry Barclay February 7, 1741/2.

Johnson took as a common-law wife Clarissa Putman, daughter of Arent Putman and Elizabeth Peek of Tribes Hill, New York, from 1765 to 1773. She was of Dutch ancestry. They had a daughter Margaret in 1765, and a son William in 1770. On June 30, 1773, Johnson married Mary Watts (daughter of Hon. John Watts President of the King’s Council, of New York). After he escaped to Canada in May 1776 at the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War, Lady Johnson was detained that year by the Whigs of New York as a hostage for the good conduct of her husband. After she was freed to join Sir John in Canada, the couple lived in Montreal during the winter and spent the summers on their seigneury at Argenteuil, Ottawa on the Ottawa River. Mary Watts and Sir John Johnson had ten sons and eight daughters. One son, James Stephen Johnson, was killed at the siege of Badajoz, in 1814. Their daughter Catherine Maria Johnson married Major-General Bernard Foord Bowes, who fell at Salamanca, in 1812. Their first son Adam Gordon Johnson (1781-1843)... Their daughter, Anne Nancy Johnson, married Colonel Edward MacDonnell (Deputy Quartermaster General to the Forces. Source: The Things That Catch My Eye
