These two books share a common theme: the imaginative combination of flowers and other botanicals with found objects to make an artistic statement. Black writes in a style reminiscent of an earlier generation of garden writers such as Rosetta Clarkson ( Magic Gardens , Macmillan, 1992. reprint) or Eleanour Sinclair Rohde ( Old English Herbals , Dover, 1989. reprint). She takes the reader through the seasons in her Cornwall garden and along the way shows how to make delightful dried flower collages and potpourris. Verschoor also follows a seasonal odyssey, walking through fields and combing beaches to find the raw materials for his table arrangements and rather spontaneous-looking outdoor decorations. Both writers combine a primarily autobiographical text full of anecdotes and philosophical observations with excellent color photographs of their work. These books are intended more for relaxation and enjoyment than instruction and would be welcome in a general garden or nature crafts collection.
