Maisons et jardins
Audio avec voix humaine
A celebration of the sensory pleasures of the garden, from deadheading flowers to studying slugs. Ackerman describes the unexpected drama, and the sanctuary, that her garden provides. Her hymn to the outdoors and the pleasure we take in it ranges… from descriptions of nature's violence to loneliness, portrayed by clamouring male crickets in spring, to sheer wonderment. 2001.
