     Henry Mitchell remains my favorite garden author and one that I return to time and time again.
     He is most often described as "curmudgeonly", having strong opinions on every aspect of gardening and, perhaps, life itself.  As a columnist for the Washington Post, he reflected on all the absurdity of digging in the dirt and trying in vain to raise exotic beauties for their fleeting glory. His down-to-earth approach and no-nonsense commentary remind you that you are not alone in your foibles and failures, or your successes, but one of many devoted gardeners.
     I highly recommend that you meet Henry through one of the collections of his columns that have appeared in book form.
