A Quote by Diane E. Bilderback on family, garden, home, mountains, and plants

Amazingly enough, almost all the fruits grown in home gardens, from strawberries to apricots, are members of the same plant family, Rosaceae, along with such decorative favorites as roses, mountain ash, flowering quince. . . . Worldwide, there are about 3,400 members of this very ancient plant group, which exhibit primitive characteristics.
