If you are a garden lover then you might want to plan a visit to Hickory Stick Bookstore located in Washington Depot on Saturday, March 31 at 2 pm for a book signing and talk with author Tovan Martin on her book, The Garden in Every Sense and Season.
About the book:
So much of gardening is focused on the monthly checklists, seasonal to-do lists, and daily upkeep–weed this area, plant these seeds, prune this tree, rake these leaves, dig this hole–frantically done all year long. But what about taking the time to truly enjoy the garden in every sense? In The Garden in Every Sense and Season, Tovah Martin mindfully explores her garden through sight, smell, sound, touch, and taste. She sees the bright yellow daffodils of spring, smells summer’s pungent roses, hears the crows in autumn, and tastes winter’s juicy citrus. In 100 evocative essays, Martin shares sage garden advice and intimate reflections on her own garden. The Garden in Every Sense and Season, from one of the greatest garden writers of our time, urges gardeners to inhale, savor, and become more attuned with their gardens.
“Reminds us that the best way to get to know a garden is through our senses. Don’t expect to make it through many pages before you feel an urge to run outdoors to reintroduce yourself to your own landscape.” –Michelle Slatalla, Gardenista
“I want to eat this book. To savor its sweetness. Tovah Martin has packed it with the sense and sensibilities of her gardening year. Mouthwatering.” –Marta McDowell, author of The World of Laura Ingalls Wilder and Beatrix Potter’s Gardening Life
