In The BNOTP Library: The Well-Placed Weed

This morning I took you on a tour of Ryan Gainey’s beautiful garden in Atlanta. The book I’m sharing today takes you back into Ryan’s garden for a much more in-depth look, as well as into his cottage-style home for a look at how he sets the table for a dinner party.

The Well-Placed Weed by Ryan Gainey

3 Things I Like About This Book:

  • This book is divided into four parts: Fulfillment, Appreciation, Reflection and Contentment. There’s a section devoted to just the sunflower. You feel Ryan’s passion and love for gardening throughout, there’s even a bit of poetry mixed in.
  • Ryan loves creating beautiful table settings and entertaining, so in addition to all the beautiful garden imagery, we’re treated to several tablescapes including a Christmas setting.
  • It’s fun seeing Ryan’s garden over the years including some of the very early stages. We get a peek inside his greenhouse at Christmastime!
