In the mode of her bestseller A Natural History of the Senses, Diane Ackerman celebrates the sensory pleasures of her garden through the seasons. Whether she is deadheading flowers or glorying in the profusion of roses, offering sugar water to a hummingbird or studying the slug, she welcomes the unexpected drama and extravagance as well as the sanctuary her garden offers.

Written in sensuous, lyrical prose, Cultivating Delight is a hymn to nature and to the pleasure we take in it.

"The joy of reading Diane Ackerman comes form the sheer beauty of her language … [it] inspires us to recognize the importance of cultivating delight." (Christian Science Monitor)

“A fascinating tour of plant mythology and fact …[Ackerman] plays both sleuth and poet.”
