When gardening and deadheading become stressful, it’s time to turn to Slow Gardening, an offshoot of Italian slow food movement, dedicated to traditional, seasonal, and sustainably grown local foods. Doing something slowly means savoring what you are doing, according to author Felder Rushing, well known in the gardening world for doing just that. His book describes all aspects of gardening, accompanied by epigrams, photographs, and his philosophy, all presented in a humorous way. This is an enjoyable read, even if Rushing only half-converts you.

This carefully researched work describing Monet’s gardens and paintings at Giverny, originally appeared a decade ago. It includes photgraphs and images that are rarely known, even to those well acquainted with Monet and his oeuvre. The production of this book meets the high standards of the Antique Collectors’ Club, with clear and sharp images and an excellent binding. If you do not have the original of this volume, this new version should be part of your library.
