The Backyard Parables by Margaret Roach Book Review

In this post, I share with you one of my favorite books of all time.  The Backyard Parables by Margaret Roach was one of the first gardening books I read.  The book will inspire you to dig deeper into the garden and life. Writing by one of my favorite podcasters and first, of the garden community, I got to know on social media. I hope you will consider purchasing this book to add to your collection.

The Backyard Parables Book Review

Whether you decide to open the hardcover book or sit down to listen to the audio of this heartfelt publication you will not be disappointed.  The author of The Backyard Parables, Margaret Roach does a spectacular job of highlighting her adventures over the past 30 years.

The Author of The Backyard Parables

“I garden because I cannot help myself,” says Margaret Roach. After 15 years at Martha Stewart Living and a decade at Newsday and The New York Times, she creates the award-winning blog and companion radio show/podcast A Way to Garden.

My Personal Take on The Backyard Parables

The Backyard Parables is one of my all-time favorite books that have inspired me to view my garden in an entirely different light. One of the first ‘gardening’ books I read from front to back. I am willing to bet you will have a hard time putting it down.  I’ve read this book 3 times since receiving it as a book review back in 2013.  I would encourage you to take time to open a book and let your imagination go with all the possibilities for your future in your home and garden.

This publication can be found on Amazon as hardcover, kindle and audio purchases.  I hope you consider using my affiliate link to get your copy today.  Thank you!
