D eborah Keever, retired Registered Nurse now has time to enjoy nature photography. She is a self taught amateur photographer. She and her husband Mike enjoy their children and six grandchildren in Raleigh, North Carolina.
D eborah G. Keever is a native of North Carolina. She is from Clarendon, a rural area in Columbus County. Deborah grew up on a farm which allowed for plenty of space to grow flowers. Her Mother always planted flowers for the sole purpose of making cut flower arrangements for the church in addition to her personal garden. She was also a licensed nurseryman specializing in daylilies. Deborah liked to walk through the flower garden with her Mama to see what was blooming. After looking over their flowers, they would visit the neighbors to see what they had blooming. Often during the growing season, they would visit other growers throughout North and South Carolina. There was always flower catalogs around the house. Then as now Deborah finds the garden to be a social venue. She enjoys chatting with her neighbors as they walk by her garden. She learned at an early age to cross-pollinate daylilies to produce a new hybrid. So you can see her love of flowers came as naturally as the sun coming up. Deborah is very appreciative that her Mother shared her love of flowers.
My kids love this book! One of my kids can not read yet, but he loves looking at the all the pictures. It is a very informative book, even I learned a thing or two. It is nice to get something that excites my kids to learn.
This is a great book! Full of wonderful facts and an easy read for grade school children. My kids love how bright, colorful, and detailed the pictures are!
Easy to follow guide that covers everything from choosing the right place to plant the flower. Also on what to look for in regards to diseases and pest and how to control them. Beautiful photos also helps to determine where you will plant the flower. The photos also help to identify the different flowers. Easy to follow and constant layout of information. I lived the book!!
This has been such a helpful book, especially for a beginner Gardner like me! I love how it gives simple instructions for when to plant, how to plant, how much water and sunlight is needed, and what diseases and pests to look out for. But not so many details that I get lost or confused. This book comes highly recommended!
I ordered this book and am very well pleased. It is very detailed on when to plant flowers and bulbs, as well as how to care for them. There are beautiful pictures throughout the book that identifies the specific plant or flower you are reading about. It is very well written and filled with wonderful and helpful hints throughout. The book is well worth the money and I strongly suggest it for anyone that wants to learn more about gardening.
