The sensuous garden

Simon & Schuster,
Pub. Date:
Pleasure and beauty, along with good and evil, were born in the garden, and it is to the garden we turn again and again, seeking an almost primal connection to the senses.

Taking the five senses (or six, including intuition) as his jumping off point, Montagu Don offers a wide-ranging, reflective view of the experiences the garden offers. Dons vision of the sensuous garden lies at the heart of this luxuriously illustrated book -- including such delightful touches as night-blooming flowers to perfume the evening air, richly textured ground covers to soften the path, and monochrome flower beds to explore the nuance of color.

Don's text, exploring the nature of sensuality and the sensuality of nature, reveals as much about human life as it does about gardening. How the eye sees yellow; how plants use light; what the thorn of the rose tells us about beauty and pain. Don reflects on these and other topics, the sort that gardeners muse over as they pause in their labors.

The Sensuous Garden is one of the most seductive, intimate, enjoyable, and original gardening books ever produced.
