    One thought on “The Invisible Garden: And Other Papers on Literature and Art”

    1. This is such a lovely book. I don't know why it's not better known or more read. The author writes about her garden in Vermont, connecting the garden to her own life. I love the specificity of the descriptions, the poetry of the natural world she describes, and her insight into life and the world. I would recommend it to anyone who loves books about gardens how they intersect with our lives. Like a garden, this book has its own quiet magic.

    2. This is a wonderful book about the lessons a garden can teach us, and the almost mystical connections between a gardener and their garden.

    3. I learned that there will always be dreams of more gardens but not all dreams are meant to become reality.

    4. A lovely book about gardening - loved her descriptions of the Vermont scenery and the local customs and her neighbors. At the end of the book, she writes about her daughter Nora who seems lost and one can feel the parental anxiety in her writings about Nora and the tree Fred - if only she could keep Fred alive, then she can keep Nora alive but Dorothy was predeceased by two of her four children so sadly Nora did not prevail.

    5. What a beautiful collection of different stories about beginning a garden or a life as a gardener. Her projects were inspired and thoughtful, and as she duly noted, completely temporary. I appreciated her chapter about her struggle and her relationship with her daughter, one of them somehow always getting it wrong and never being able to get over that divide. She points out some very clear things. For instance, how when other people see the garden you are working on it is beautifully and wonderf [...]

    6. Once again I have read a memoir by a woman who falls in love with VT and moves here, at least for the summers. Dorothy Sucher tells the story of buying an old farmhouse because it has a stream on the property. While she was very much of an urbanite, she loved her land, respected and learned valuable lessons from her neighbors, and became an avid gardener who associated her gardens with her beloved relatives. This is a beautifully written book full of wisdom for all gardeners. "Gardens are living [...]

    7. You don't have to be a gardener to appreciate and enjoy this book of essays about the author's Vermont retreat. It's about the people associated in her mind with the various and quirky elements of her garden. Pick up this book for a relaxing, often humorous, and enjoyable read. You might feel inspired to create or improve your garden, but you might just as easily feel it's okay to just admire what others have done.

    8. I'm not done yet. I put it down about a third of the way through--just got sooooo boring!I wasn't interested in reading about any more flowers, etc. But I picked it up again, and it'sinteresting now as she's traveling, and there's actually some action. I hope the rest of the bookstays this way. It did not. Finished it, but can't even remember it now.

    9. I liked this book - even though I don't live in Vermont or do any garden projects on such a grand scale, I felt like I could really relate to this woman. She had a very down-to-earth writing style, easy-going yet thoughtful, meditative and reflective. I found the book inspiring, now if the weather would just cooperate so I can get my garden going again!

    10. I tried, I really TRIED to finish this affectionate tribute to gardening in Vermont. No hard feelings, book, but your simple homespun insights failed to fascinate. Gardenias have got to be more interesting than this.

    11. This book was fantastic. It is about the gardens surrounding the Vermont house that Phil and Amy own. It was exceptionally fun because they are at the house this weekend. To read how everything was set up and imagine them there, made for very close feelings.

    12. One woman's journey from soil to soul. She a psychiatrist, husband a physicist, moved to Vermont. Key elements were: other gardeners; a pond; a storm; and a field of wild flowers. Other oops include the mysteries Dead Men Don't Give Seminars, and Dead Men Don't Marry.

    13. reminds me of why gardening is so important.Takes place in Vermont. According to the author, "one woman's journey from soil to soul". I agree!

    14. This true story about a much-loved property in Cabot, VT holds a personal interest for me. Recommended for anyone who likes VT and/or has dreamed of owning a vacation property.

    15. Again, this is a beautiful book. If you are looking to escape reality, you will want to read this one. It takes place in Vermont.

    16. As an erstwhile gardener with many family connections to the Green Mountain State, the vignettes in this book resonate with me deeply. Poignant, reflective, utterly charming.

    17. This is a wonderful book for us gardeners written by a very wise elder. I fell in love with her and her work.
