Every page, including the text, has been hand painted. Dip into it for recipes, poems, proverbs, and garden thoughts. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

What an enchantingly beautiful book! This is one of my favorite books, and I love giving it as a gift to gentle souls. If you like gardens, watercolor paintings, and calligraphy, you will love this beautifully bound book that is filled with Sara Midda's exquisite watercolors. Each page is a miniature painting of breathtaking intricacy and delicacy celebrating the myriad forms of gardens, flowers, vegetables, and herbs in which we delight. The book is filled with boundless garden wisdom, recipes, and poems, all charmingly set forth in Sara Midda's beautiful calligraphy. You have to see this book to know how beautiful and inspirational a gem it is!

Hurray for the re-issue of this beautiful book! Paging through this hand-painted, calligraphied book any day of the year is like an escape into the Garden of Paradise! Hundreds of small, engaging watercolors of the garden and whimsical little garden people, harmonized with beautiful calligraphy. Besides being filled with the author/illustrator's charming observations, it is a veritable treasure trove of garden lore, with many quotes from authors old and new and advice from classic, old treatises on gardening and horticulture. Also many enchanting, anonymous garden sayings and quaint herbal folk remedies. The history of fruits and vegetables as a part of our culture. I bought two copies of this book--one to just periodically carry around with me! It's one of my favorite gift books, too. You won't be able to stop dreaming over it. You'll adore it!

I picked this book up because it looked interesting, I love all books about gardening. I didn't have my reading glasses at the time I purchased this book. When I sat down to read it, with my glasses on, I couldn't make out most of it. The type is extremely small, the font color is somewhat washed out, and the calligraphy - although beautiful, adds to the diffuculty of reading this. I had to get a magnifying glass out to read some of it. It's a shame such a beautiful book was published with such small type.

This book is so much fun. As a watercolorist, I am enchanted by her use of objects and her interpretation of the human form. Colors are wonderful. Hooray for Sara Midda and I hope she keeps publishing her books.

I purchased this book when I was in Art college over ten years ago. Sara abilility to capture her interest with her illustrative talent is amazing . It is definately the most interesting book I ever read without seeing typesetting, but with her beautifully hand painted type.

This book is beautiful but almost UNREADABLE because of the tiny print. I use reading glasses for all books and they do the job, even with small print. However, they did NOT work for THIS book and I was forced to use a magnifying glass! WHY the print is so tiny is anybody's guess as there is plenty of room on each page to make the print larger. I plan to donate this book to my local thrift shop...we'll see how long it stays on the shelf there!

Seemed pretty enough -- if only I could have read it. Between the pastel ink color chosen for the text and the smaller font size, I actually had to use a magnifying glass with my prescription glasses to read some of these pages. At one point, I wondered if this was a facsimile shrunken from an originally larger trim size.

very disappointed.
