Riassunto: A book designed as a gift from any grandparent to any grandchild. All of us with grandchildren have the desire to share with them the wisdom that we have distilled from our own lives and to offer them this accompanied by loving wishes. Few of us can find the occasion ofr the words to make this gift. Welleran Poltarnees has the ability to say what we find it difficult to say, to find the right words to say it and, furthermore, the resources to beautifully illustrate each thought. Poltarnees, a grandfather himself, embodies his wishes for grandchildren in concrete images - trees in springtime to remind one of life's endless renewal, a flight of birds to represent the glory of freedom, and so on - a gift of beauty.
L'autore: WELLERAN POLTARNEES has a lifelong love of gardens. His first memory is falling out of his baby carriage and landing on a bed of odorous white flowers which not only kept him from injury, but made the experience a sensual delight. He collects books about, and pictures of, gardens -- but there are few timeless things that he does not so honor. He uses a book called Great Gardens of the World as a guide whenever he travels, and, with the exception of the Boboli Gardens in Florence, which came highly recommended and which he found monotonous -- the gardens have always refreshed him. His favorite time for gardens is night. His favorite garden music is Manuel De Falla's ""Nights in the Gardens of Spain"", and his favorite garden poem is ""The Garden"" by Andrew Marvell.
