The author reflects on several catalogues and books about gardening. From the five catalogues from water-lily growers that she read, she learned that there exist day-blooming hardy water lilies possessing different colors and tropical lilies that could bloom both at day and night. She notes that the book "Gardens in Winter," by Elizabeth Lawrence, serves as a guide for trees, shrubs, plants and bulbs for a garden during winter. The seed company W. Atlee Burpee Co. issued two retail catalogues about the seeds that it offers.
