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 does just that. Beginning the heady blooms of spring and closing with putting the garden to bed in winter, 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, savour, and become more attuned with their gardens.

"Anything written by Tovah Martin is a treat, and The Garden in Every Sense and Season is no exception. A chronicle of her garden throughout the year, it is a sensory journal. . . . Readers will feel like they are following along as she completes her seasonal tasks. . . .
