RE: Book Help please

Jesse:  Sorry, I can't help with the book thing but here is something I can help with:

Our Lady of Guadalupe Trappist Abbey
PO Box 97
Layfayette, OR  97127-0097

email for general inquiries:

This is a monastic community of men who in the Trappist tradition are
self supporting through their own labor; while I don't think they make
the wine themselves, one of their business ventures is the Abbey Wine
Warehouse, a storage facility for wineries in the western part of the
U.S. They also run a book binding business, a bakery, and something to
do with forestry. I myself have personal experience with a lovely
monastic community of women in Madison, Wisconsin...it is the place I
sought refuge after the trying months following my brother's suicide.
The sisters there helped me to find a focus and a balance in my life
that had been previously lost amid the stress I was under. There are
monastic communities all over the country, literally hundreds of
them...most of them have guest facilities for personal retreats.

Wish you luck with the coming weekend. Tell Neil congratulations from
all of us and for all your kids to be looking for mail from my kids!
They miss them soooooooooooooooooooooo much! Amazing how well they all
connected, isn't it? Miss you guys!

Subject: [CHAT] Book Help please

*Sigh*, O.K. I'm at my wits ends. Last weekend I saw an article in one
of <br>my MANY gardening magazines on "Black and White Gardens" and they
mentioned <br>a book with a similar title. I know I tore the page out so
I could look <br>into that book. NOW...I can't find it. Not that I don't
have a million <br>things distracting me...my 16 year old son graduates
from military school on <br>Saturday, family and friends coming, trying
to sell my house, husband <br>looking for new job, kids home for the
summer, etc. ANYWAY...I have torn <br>the place up looking for this. My
question is: Does anybody have any IDEA <br>about a book that has to do
with "black and white gardening". It was about <br>dark purple and red
plants that look almost black (like "black magic <br>elephant ears",
etc.) mixed with vivid white plants. I want to do a garden <br>like
that. I've searched the internet, called bookstores and can't seem to
<br>find anything by that name. Any help would be GRE

ATLY appreciated. My <br>brain is tired, my body is tired...my soul is
tired. After graduation...I <br>think I would like to find a monastery
that specializes in making <br>wines...and go hide there for a week. NO
phone, no T.V., no husband, no <br>children, no job, no animals. Just me
and monks going about their business <br>acting like I'm not there.
(well, I can dream can't I?)<br><br>Jesse Rene' Bell<br>Claremore,
