APRIL IN THE BRANCHES by Gulielma F. Alsop


Email this review


A lyric account of the incredible wonders of a New England garden, as the author, a doctor, tells of manifestations from April through November. Here is the miraculous life, the lack of atiety in the seasonal changes of the garden's evolution, the literary, historical and travel allusions, the procession of discoveries, the shape, color and sequence of the flowers, of the birds, the animals, the bees. The log tells of plant collecting, the lifting of the honey, gathering of seed, the first frost and putting the garden to bed; of the workers, friends, experiences in making the garden, of the adventures outside as they range to find additions for their hobby. A definite appeal for the indefatigable garden book reader, in the Beverley Nichols' tradition.
