Reviews


"During long months of cold, blustery weather or springtime days filled with anticipation, this wonderful, rich stockpile of poems will render a treasury of garden images. It will not only supply the imagination with all the sensory delights and sublime views of old English gardens, but also provide the more intrepid visitor to these pages with interior landscapes conjured up by contemporary masters like Octavio Paz. Culled from sources as diverse as the King James Bible and Anne Sexton, this anthology may be just what the doctor ordered for a gardener's tendinitis--a definitive respite from the reality of double-digging and the toil of weeding."--Booklist
