Abstract:

In this tenth-anniversary edition of An Ecology of Enchantment, Des Kennedy carries the reader, week by week, through a full year in the garden he shares with his partner, Sandy. With his trademark self-effacing wit, Kennedy captures the essence of the gardening experience beginning in winter dormancy, awakening to new life in spring, swelling into summer lushness, then declining into melancholy with the season of dying-away. Undaunted by setbacks and lusting habitually for the perfect garden, he takes you along with him on a gardening journey rich with insights and adventures.--COVER.
