Synopsis: The sight of a graceful birch; the delicious scent of honeysuckle; the soft caress of billowing grass; the soothing trickle of a fountain; the sweetness of peas fresh from the pod: gardens excite all our senses and bring us into close contact with nature. Make the most of the sensory opportunities provided by every element in the garden, from the soil itself to the plants and wildlife to the walls, surfaces, and structures. Through evocative, sometimes startling photographs, along with highly personal and poetic writing, you'll become vividly aware of seasonal changes; of the agave as an astonishing piece of living sculpture; of light diffused through leaves; of the smoothness of seed beans ready for planting; of the raging red that brightens autumn leaves and ripe berries; of the crisp chill in the garden asleep for the winter. The words and images will resonate long after the covers are closed. A Selection of Garden Book Club.

Review: The Oxford English Dictionary defines "sensuous" to mean "affecting the senses, especially aesthetically," and Montagu Don's The Sensuous Garden provides a gardening ideal for all five senses (or six, if you count intuition) to wallow in. How often do we really experience a garden fully, with all our senses? Sight, smell, and taste are the easy ones, but the other two are too often slighted. Touch: bark, mud, a grainy handful of seeds. Hearing: birds, rustling grasses, the satisfying crunch of fallen leaves. The sensuous approach is combined with sensible gardening advice in the text, but really, you'll want this one mostly for the pictures and for the inspiration it will give you to go out and just be in your own garden.
