It was late April when I came by. As I looked up into that tree top the sunlight was shining through, and at first I thought I must be dreaming. Instead of buds, I saw what seemed like lighted candles, each with a silken frill, like the recurved petals of an iris, below the tip of flame! I had never seen a tree thus illuminated, and the sight was enchanting. The warm spring air had brought out the hickory buds, with those of other trees, and while I was looking for flowers on the ground, the buds above had swollen, cast off the winter covers, revealing the silky inner wrappings of the young shoots. The rich downward-curving "petals" were only the inner scales of the great buds, grown long and wide, their vivid orange setting off the compact yellow buds that still stood erect... I had never seen a hickory tree opening its iris-like buds before, but I have never missed it since. [From Chapter 1]

Elizabeth Lawrence (1904–85) is recognized as one of America’s most important gardeners and garden writers. In 1957, Lawrence began a weekly column for the Charlotte Observer, blending gardening lore and horticultural expertise gained from her own gardens in Raleigh and Charlotte, North Carolina, and from her many gardener friends. This book presents 132 of her beloved columns. Never before published in book form, they were chosen from the more than 700 pieces that she wrote for the Observer over fourteen years. Lawrence exchanged plants and gardening tips with everyone from southern “farm ladies” trading bulbs in garden bulletins to prominent regional gardeners. She corresponded with nursery owners, everyday backyard gardeners, and literary luminaries such as Katharine White and Eudora Welty. Her books, including A Southern Garden, The Little Bulbs, and Gardens in Winter, inspired several generations of gardeners in the South and beyond. The columns in this volume cover specific plants, such as sweet peas, hellebores, peonies, and the bamboo growing outside her living-room window, as well as broader topics including the usefulness of vines, the importance of daily pruning, and organic gardening. Like all of Lawrence’s writing, these columns are peppered with references to conversations with neighbors and quotations from poetry, mythology, and correspondence. They brim with knowledge gained from a lifetime of experimenting in her gardens, from her visits to other gardens, and from her extensive reading. Lawrence once wrote, “Dirty fingernails are not the only requirement for growing plants. One must be as willing to study as to dig, for a knowledge of plants is acquired as much from books as from experience.” As inspiring today as when they first appeared in the Charlotte Observer, the columns collected in Beautiful at All Seasons showcase not only Lawrence’s vast knowledge but also her intimate, conversational writing style and her lifelong celebration of gardens and gardening.

Es ist ein Erfolg, der mit der Nominierung zum Pulitzerpreis 1944 beginnt und bis heute anhält: Seit über siebzig Jahren findet und verzaubert Ein Baum wächst in Brooklyn weltweit neue Leserinnen und Leser. Dieser Roman über ein Mädchen, das gegen alle Hindernisse anliest, ist nun endlich wieder auf Deutsch erhältlich – eine Geschichte, erfüllt von Lebenslust und Kraft, beseelt von der Euphorie über das Sein. Die elfjährige Francie Nolan ist eine unbändige Leserin, eine Süßigkeiten-Connaisseuse, eine genaue Beobachterin der menschlichen Natur – und sie hat einen Traum: Sie möchte Schriftstellerin werden. Ein Traum, der in dem bunten, ruppigen Williamsburg von 1912 kaum zu erfüllen ist. Hier brummen die Mietshäuser vor all den Zugewanderten, jeden Tag wird von dem hart verdienten Geld das Essen zusammengeklaubt, Kinder strömen samstags durch die Straßen, um für ihren gesammelten Trödel einige Pennies für Süßes zu ergattern. Doch wenn Francie auf der Feuertreppe in der Sonne sitzt und liest, kann sie sich keinen schöneren Ort vorstellen. Und wenn sie auch gegen so manche Widrigkeit anschreiben muss, trägt sie doch eines in sich: dass es sich immer lohnt, nach dem puren Leben zu streben.
