An Ecology of Enchantment Summary


An Ecology of Enchantment: A Year in the Life of a Garden by Des Kennedy

For the past 36 years, Des Kennedy and his family have lived largely outside their hand-built house in intimate contact with the Earth its creatures, its changing seasons, and its weather patterns. In this charming book's 52 chapters, Kennedy brings readers deep into his garden, week by week, from winter's dormancy to summer's splendor. With his trademark self-effacing humor, the author captures the essence of the gardening experience, exploring his triumphs, failures, mishaps, and occasional magic. Undaunted by setbacks and lusting for the perfect garden, Kennedy takes readers with him on a gardening journey rich with insights and adventures. The effects of devastating snow storms; the slow-food cuisine of rutabagas, parsnips, and carrots; the gardener's inalienable right to dress in rags; the outlandish behaviour and florid oratory induced by flowering poppies these and scores of other topics meander through the book's gardening year alternately informing, inspiring, and amusing.
