9781567997910: Sanctuary: Gardening for the Soul

“Each chapter is devoted to a particular aspect of a sanc-tuary garden: peace, change, passion, mystery, and contemplation....The photographs are glorious.”— The American Gardener.   Peaceful gardens come alive in this lushly photographed and oversized volume. Serenity is found in soothing, flowing water and the brilliant colors and mystical perfume of fragrant plants.

Review:

If you like landscape or gardening books that are heavy on pretty, full-color pictures but whose text is light on substance, you'll love Sanctuary, this large-format softcover whirl through the (admittedly very pretty and substantive) garden photography of Dency Kane. It's organized into sections with such soft-focus headings as "Peace," "Change," "Passion," "Mystery," and "Contemplation." That should tip you off to the tone of the copy that runs through here, which--with the exception of captions that identify various flora--brings very little insight to the images and, if you haven't completely discounted it after a few pages, takes on the inane droning quality of Jack Handy's "Deep Thoughts" meditation spots on Saturday Night Live. ("You can't be noisy in a growing house--it has the sacred quality of a library," goes one such morsel of page-filler. "Listen only for the gentle creep of growing limbs.") But again, the pictures are lovely, and not without their bounty of inspirational ideas for gardeners. --Timothy Murphy
