Last weekend, I sat down with Michael Devine's much awaited book, An Invitation to the Garden, on seasonal entertaining outdoors…and read it cover to cover. I remembered having lunch with Michael and a friend, after he had addressed my garden club in 2011. He had shared with us his plans for the book….so I have been anxious to see the final result. Worth the wait! Michael has managed to create magical moments within each season and to show us how to do it all in a garden setting. Recipes, table setting, inspired design.
The perfect hostess gift or Mother's Day gift….you can even have Michael sign it this weekend at the New York Botanical Garden, during the Antique Garden Furniture Fair.
Now, if only we can just get ourselves an invitation to Michael's garden! I'm sure it's lovely this time of year!!
