Format: Paperback
I haven't read this book and I'm not a gardener... yet. But I have been reading Sara's gardening columns in the Metro and her writing is like a garden itself: working at many levels at once. Frankly I read her column for its philosophy more than anything. She lives among nature as a participant. I recommend her writing to everyone, it's startlingly different, you will see your garden and all of nature with a different perspective.

Format: Paperback
Gardening is more than a hobby for some. "The Imperfect Garden" explores the spiritual side of gardening from author Adina Sara's perspective; she finds much comfort in restoring her backyard garden and turning it into something beautiful. With moving anecdotes, and full color gardening photos, Sara may inspire others to create their own garden and embrace it, making "The Imperfect Garden" a strong choice.

Format: Paperback
As much as this book is about gardening, it is a book that reflects a philosphy of life, celebrating creativity, spontaneity, and serendipity. Gardeners and non-gardeners will love this book. It is at once funny, heartwarming, and wise. - Joan Alexander
