Bobbi Angell, whose distinctive botanical illustrations grace the front of seed packets from John Scheepers (I fell in love with radishes and ended up growing them upon seeing one of these said illustrations) will be at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden for a book signing on Wednesday, March 4th. Angell is the illustrator behind Our Life in Gardens by Joe Eck and Wayne Winterrowd. Also that day, Eck and Winterrowd will present the BBG’s Special Winter Lecture, based on the book, covering the making of their garden at North Hill, five acres lovingly and ambitiously cultivated in southern Vermont, which the garden historian Mac Griswold has called “one of the ten best private gardens in North America.” Preregistration is required. Call BBG’s registration hotline at 718-623-7230. Fee is $10 for BBG members, $12 for nonmembers.
