An Island Garden book. An added bonus are the watercolor illustrations provided by Childe Hassam (an American Impressionist and good friend of Thaxter's). I first came to know of Thaxter through Hassam's paintings and the combination of the two artistic expressions make for a very satisfying read.

Frederick Childe Hassam (October 17, 1859 – August 27, 1935) was an American Impressionist painter, noted for his urban and coastal scenes. Along with Mary Cassatt and John Henry Twachtman, Hassam was instrumental in promulgating Impressionism to American collectors, dealers, and museums. The following year, his friend Celia Thaxter convinced him to drop his first name and thereafter he was known as "Childe Hassam".

Celia Thaxter in her Garden, 1892, by Childe Hassam. An island garden (1894). Resources in your library. Thaxter has done for the sea-shore and the varied aspects of ocean views and the rocky isles of her home, what Whittier has done for the milder aspects of the river on whose banks he dwelt. As he may be said to have exhausted the descriptive beauties of the Merrimac, Thaxter appears to have left nothing unsaid of the varying features of the ocean, whose waves were forever beating at her feet.

Celia Thaxter, the author of this book, takes the reader on an amazing journey through every phase of tending her beloved garden on Appledore Island.

By far my favorite gardening book for winter reading. It is written in old style English but you very quickly become accustomed to that and soon realize that the writer gardens from the heart. Reading this in the winter will take you right into the garden with Mrs. Thaxter's descriptive writing. You can almost smell the soil and watch the seeds germinate.
This edition has reprinted the lovely paintings from the original illustrations. Another treat.
This edition is currently out of print, I look for it in resale shops and have been lucky enough to find it at very reasonable prices in like new condition for gifting fellow gardeners.
A wonderful book for those who garden from their soul.

best garden book of a place and in a certain time ... ever! Worth owning! Worth reading. And if you are lucky ... worth going to that island in the Isle of Shoals, NH
????????????????????????
Copy was fine but I had expected the drawings that were in the original that I had seen.

Reproduction of a classic in gardening history. A beautifully printed hardback with a hard slip cover.

I love how she explains things as she writes, talking to her flowers, describing each little flower's personality. I especially love how she describes the ocean waves as they break on the shore. It is like you are there with her and living every little detail. Fascinating book, I read it over many times because I just want to " live " there in my dreams.

Quite unique - it is a gift for a friend who loves all things gardening.

I was hoping for more pictures but the story of Celia Theater is a good one.
