So much of gardening is focused on the long list of chores—the weeding, the planting, and the pruning. But what about the joy a garden can provide? In The Garden in Every Sense and Season, Tovah Martin explores the sensory delights of her own garden and discovers the pleasures that can be found in focusing on sight, smell, sound, touch, and taste. I have read Martin’s lovely writing for many years and know of no other writer who is as passionate about the garden. - S.B.
