One person found this helpful. I am a big reader so I was very excited when I was asked to read and review this book. I love to spend nap time sitting on the deck or porch and reading in the sun. It is rare that both my girls sleep at the same time, but when they do, that is where you can find me. When I received Postcards From the Hedge: Seasons in a Suburban Garden in the mail I was just finishing up another book.
It took me a couple days to finish that and then I picked up this one. The book is hard cover and the photo on the front is just gorgeous. I opened to the first chapter and began to read - immediately I was transported. Jill Appenzeller sure has a way with words. In the first few paragraphs she talks about being too young for school and having alone time with her mother - it makes me think of my daughters and the time I will have with the youngest when the oldest is in school which is sooner than I wish to admit.
I knew right then that I would enjoy and relate to this book.
It is a "collection of vignettes that span all four seasons as well as decades of memories both in and out of the garden. I do not want to give much away but I will say my favorite chapter was "Mother's Day".
I have many un-level areas in the yard and am dreading leveling them in order to complete some projects I have taken on. This vignette is about leveling area for a bench and it just hit close to home - I am now looking forward to having the time to do some leveling with my husband and kids. I have the privilege of looking out my window and seeing Jill's amazing garden.
I now look at my garden in a whole different light. If you love gardening, nature, and memorable stories, you will love this book. Jill's wit and charm really come in every story she writes.

Modern low-volume toilets with their 1. It has a sealed cartridge at the base to let liquid through and keep odor out. If each man makes four visits per day, that's 1, flushes— or at least 1, gallons of water per year saved for each male employee. With Miyuki, our intrepid guide why are guides always intrepid?
I suppose if they're not intrepid they are insipid - or lost. And a lot of walking. Without Miyuki we would still be wandering the subway. It's not just the trains, with thirteen main lines, or the ticket machines with instructions in Japanese. It's the stairs up and down to change platforms or to find your platform in the first place , the sinuous tile-lined tunnels that look like MC Escher drawings, the banks of escalators rising into the air in all different directions, the rivers of bobbing heads scurrying along And you realize getting off at the right stop is only the beginning.
Even Miyuki occasionally had to ask which exit from the station to take, and she lives here. She led us down some narrow walkways precariously close to oncoming trains to get to our exits. If you take the wrong exit, God help you; exits can be blocks from each other. You may need a taxi. A few more memories from our madcap tour: No, silly, that's not our jinrickshaw driver - that's Miyuki. At the Asakusa shrine, girls rent kimonos for their visit.

Get your fortune told at the temple this involves shaking sticks and paper slips. If your fortune is bad, tie it to the temple and leave it behind. The smoke from all the incense in supposed to cure what ails you, and if nothing ails you, it's good for that too. Holy Smoke, Miuki says.
Green beans with caviar and gold leaf, wasabi cream and grated hard-boiled egg Foie Gras on risotto with the most delicious vinegar-butter-cabernet reduction to balance the richness Posted by Postcards From The Hedge at 9: Pasta with Prosciutto and Peas. With home-made pasta it is transcendent. I whipped up a batch. My hands were too messy to photograph the mixing-the-eggs-with-the-flour stage. But then it came together into a nice lump: Set the pasta bike on smaller and smaller settings, until:
