The most elegant and subtle of books to give and to have, this title evokes the English gardens of Sara Midda's childhood, sowing the imagination with glorious images.
Dozens and dozens of illustrations and tender reflections recall a hut in the wood, or a topiary maze, a summer day spent podding peas, or an herb patch that yields Biblical fragrances.
Ruby-red radishes are the jewels of the underworld. Myriad colors fall upon warm green moss. Painted with Sara Midda's fine brush, it is a book of lasting enchantment.
