FRAGRANCE IN THE GARDEN

Fragrance brings a joyful sensation. The author has a vital, brittle style, her writing is full of short choppy sentences that cling in your mind. ""The fragrant garden is a garden plus,"" ""I smell the Spring,"" ""The fragrance is fleeting."" Thus she launches her enchanting chapter on perfumes and pot pourri in which she gives detailed instructions for their preparation. An excellent chapter (arranged alphabetically) lists the fragrant flowers, shrubs, trees and vines giving descriptions, habits, etc., of each throughout. There are bits of history and folk lore tracing the plants and usage from the last across Europe and gradually on to us. This book will appeal to all who love the unusual, who want gardens that are essentially theirs, perfect for a garden club study.
