"Every season I visualize what I want my garden to be: What colors will I incorporate? What varieties? What scents? In 2010 a friend of mine passed away. She was from Oklahoma, and as a tribute to her I planted wildflowers like snapdragons, marigolds, black-eyed Susans, and baby's breath. I wanted people to feel as if they were walking through America's heartland when they visited my garden. Digging in the soil always feels like an expression of my soul." —Donna Brazile
