This audiobook, essentially a love letter to gardening, wends its way through foliage and flowers with a sweet, affectionate tone, thanks to Arthur Morey's genuine narration. With a unique texture to his tone, Morey treats this very specific subject matter with a warmth that transcends mere reflection and allows the listener to consider larger, more personal connections with nature and its inhabitants. There is a gentle gruffness to Morey's timbre that, paired with a consistent pace, lulls one into the center of rich descriptions and creates a hypnotic effect. Yes, this is a very specialized topic for an audiobook and, yes, the details can be esoteric, but the affection for beauty and all living things is universal, and Morey's delivery amplifies that love.
