A Garden Blessing
This book begins, ""I offer this blessing for you and your garden, enumerating the many virtues of gardens that we are vividly aware of their place in our lives and grateful for their existence."" The text emphasizes the many profound satisfactions that gardens offer. It is illustrated with a rich variety of paintings including ones by Childe Hassam, Frederick Frieske, Claude Monet, Diego Rivera, Suzanne Valadon, and William Glackens. The profusion of illustration, poetic reflections and the felicitous design make this book a suitable tribute to the gardens it celebrates.

Unusual for Welleran Polternees, many of the graphics chosen are not crisp or appealing. He chose a different painterly style than is usual in his gift books. The blessing itself is nice. Read full review
