If it sometimes seems that gardening is all work and no play, here s the book that will turn that canard on its head Garden Whimsy is an entertaining look at the lighter side of gardening a refreshing change from how to books on composting and double digging When author Tovah Martin lectures, her talk on garden whimsy is the one her audiences like best This book brings her marvelous stories, illustrated by Richard Brown s stunning photographs, to the wider audience that has come to appreciate this talented team So what is whimsy, botanically speaking It may be as subtle as an inscription on a sundial or as noticeable as a child size lighthouse Birdhouses and scarecrows are favorite subjects, and so are topiary animals, capricious gates, and fences topped with the gardener s collection of blackbirds, kitchen utensils, or gardening gloves It is eccentric, askew in short, whatever strikes a witty gardener s fancy Best of all, it will inspire the reader to go and do likewise....

Garden Whimsy Reviews
excellent book. as all of hers are.
Interesting take on gardens. I find it to be a keeper.
I Love this book! It has exactly the ideas I needed to help me plan my garden redo, used but in excellent condition
Excellent photography. In spite of being "whimsical", most gardens here are kind of moody. It is New England - centric, and I wish for more western gardens to be displayed. Someone write THAT book please! I give it 4 stars as it nicely entertained me during crappy weather here in Oregon this wet spring.
