Great Garden Quotes is the most beautiful, fun, and inspiring coloring book ever created,” claims GreenPrints Editor Stone. Why?

“First, because it’s about gardening—the most beautiful, fun, and inspiring outdoor activity of all (as every gardener knows.) And second, because the art and quotes in have been collected over 26 years! The art was created by an array of talented illustrators from all over North America and originally published in my magazine, GreenPrints, The Weeder’s Digest, the magazine that shares the personal side of gardening.

“I should confess (somewhat sheepishly) that Great Garden Quotes wasn’t originally my idea. Sure, I’ve been publishing remarkable black-and-white art in GreenPrints for over two-and-a-half decades. But I never thought of sharing it in a coloring book—not until a subscriber called in and said. ‘I’ve loved your magazine for years now. And after I read the stories, I color in every page!”

“Eureka! Great Garden Quotes was born! Well, conceived, really—it took quite a long labor to get this baby in print (grin!).”
