After a year of scheming via email and only one phone call, I finally met GardenRant’s illustrious instigator, Ms. Amy Stewart. In D.C. to promote Flower Confidential, Amy wowed ’em wherever she went – the flower-craving crowds at the U.S. Botanic Gardens and Four Seasons Garden Club, book-buyers at Olsson’s, and Diane Rehm’s listeners. No, I didn’t stalk her to all her events, but judging from the two I did attend, she’s quite the crowd-pleaser. And totally cute, as you can see here. Also model thin, as you can also see.
But anybody with a shred of motherly instinct would fret over this unlucky Californian forced to travel the frozen north in February with that lightweight spring wrap of hers. So to the good people at Algonquin – no more winter book releases!
