The growth of trees brings uninvited events. A pioneer spirit is needed to survive and remain hardy. Leave of Absence: An illustrated Guide to Common Garden Affection is a powerful grafting of poetry by Laura Madeline Wiseman and lush and delicate drawings by Sally Deskins. This book is a refreshing hybrid of natural history and emotional discovery.
