Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore – New Book on the Shelves – #Memoir #Gardening – Twigs in my Hair by Cynthia Reyes

Delighted to share the news of the latest release from Cynthia Reyes, a gardening memoir – Twigs in my Hair.

About Twigs in my Hair

Author Cynthia Reyes returns with Twigs in My Hair, a book about her lifelong passion for gardens and nature and the surprising relationships and events involved. Gorgeous photographs by Hamlin Grange complement a humorous and profound story. A beautiful gift for gardeners and non-gardeners. Readers will meet a variety of interesting creatures, both human and animal, some of whom compete for gardening produce or gardening glory. You may conclude, after reading Twigs in My Hair, that the gardener’s love for growing things swings from reverence to mania. But there is also a deeply emotional side to this story about what happens when a passionate gardener can no longer do what she loves.

~~Praise for Twigs in My Hair:

“Her best book yet! Cynthia’s most recent memoir takes us on a journey through the various gardens of her life: the wonder, magic and miracle of her childhood gardens; the gardens she and her husband “negotiate” as a newly married couple; the apprenticeship gardens of family and community; and finally, the mature garden of acceptance. It is a journey full of insights, humour, and struggle, but ultimately, one of growth and the recognition that by nurturing our gardens we nurture ourselves.” Jean Gairdner, author and lifelong gardener.

~~“How obstinate does a wisteria have to be before you resort to verse? How do you get a fox to pee in a bottle? Cynthia’s zestful pursuit of beauty in the gardens of her life is told with her characteristic warmth, humour and honesty. This is a story for our times.” Dr. Hilary Custance Green, gardener and author of Border Line, a novel.
