Inspired by his years raising a family in an old arts and crafts house nestled into an acre of beautiful gardens, Mr. Jensen offers a glimpse inside the heart and mind of a gardener in his memoir, “The Garden Interior.”

Mr. Jensen, who lives and gardens now in Scottsdale, demonstrates the work, determination, and appreciation for life that goes into raising a thriving garden, showing that this is more than just a hobby; it is lifelong passion.

With themes of hope, persistence, family, tradition, and growth, this nostalgic new memoir beautifully illustrates life’s ups and downs through the lens of a resilient gardener, all told from the vantage point of the garden.

Mr. Jensen began gardening at the age of 9 and has gone on doing so for nearly half a century. He lives and gardens now, with his wife Deb, at their homes in Denver and in Scottsdale. His motto as a gardener is “Qui plantavit florebit” (“He who has planted, will flourish.”)

The Scottsdale Independent is published monthly and mailed to 75,000 homes and businesses in Scottsdale.
