Explains how to appreciate one's garden with the senses of touch, sight, hearing, taste, smell, and intuition The Oxford English Dictionary defines "sensuous" to mean "affecting the senses, especially aesthetically," and Montagu Don's The Sensuous Garden provides a gardening ideal for all five senses (or six, if you count intuition) to wallow in. How often do we really experience a garden fully, with all our senses? Sight, smell, and taste are the easy ones, but the other two are too often slighted. Touch: bark, mud, a grainy handful of seeds. Hearing: birds, rustling grasses, the satisfying crunch of fallen leaves. The sensuous approach is combined with sensible gardening advice in the text, but really, you'll want this one mostly for the pictures and for the inspiration it will give you to go out and just be in your own garden.
