Description
In the small and densely packed quarter acre beside her family's seaside home in Gloucester, Massachusetts, Kim Smith indulges her passion for her garden, brimming with every species imaginable and some—including apricots—that a few might consider unimaginable. The author is especially interested in the intangibles that a garden provides: the moods and ambiance, the butterflies attracted, the harmonious patterns of color, light, and texture. This book is as much about how to visualize a garden as it is about particular trees, shrubs, vines, perennials, and annuals, and includes poetry and quotations from Eastern and Western sources as well as the author's own watercolor nature drawings throughout.

"Oh Garden! is a treasure, and perhaps the best garden gift book of the season. Both dream-like and practical, it captures the gardener's journey by integrating personal essays, hands-on advice, and paintings."—Boston Globe

"This is a book to dip into and come away refreshed. The author's own exquisite paintings abound."—Bloomsbury Review
