Time out to enjoy....

nandina(8b)June 13, 2012

Today I found a delightful book of garden essays free on Kindle. HICKORY ROAD RAMBLINGS by Barbara Jean McHugh, a garden writer living in NC. As you know, Kindle freebies come and go quickly. Hope it remains free for a few days for you all to enjoy as the thermometer creeps upward.

The photographs are amazing, really moody and shows a good eye for detail, the text not so much. I think it would have been better presented as a picture book with insightful captions as the text is cliche ridden. Maybe non gardeners will enjoy it more but I think her writing style shows none of the artistry of her photos and tries to hard to disguise that with cliche.
