This will no doubt be the best book I read this year, and it is only February. Renkl's writing is gorgeous. Her perceptions of things make me jealous that I don't seem capable of perceiving things her way. I think I teared up on every page of this book. What she wrote about, the feeling she put into it, her sincerity, her loving, caring nature, all of that just swept me along. I read this book in one day. I thought it was magnificent.

A contemplative book of essays on looking at, and appreciating, the world around us. It mentions not raking leaves, letting weeds and wildflowers grow to help the pollinators, and other ways to appreciate the natural world. Renkl discusses the change of seasons and relates it to her life as her children grow older, and prepare to leave the family home. It is a beautiful book of meditations. Very enjoyable and peaceful, giving me a lot to think about as I look at the world around me.

I have read Margaret Renkl’s nature-themed essays in the NYT for years, so i was interested in reading one of her books. This book consists of brief essays covering 2 themes: observations of nature, and end-of-life issues within her own family. Margaret grew up in Alabama, and currently writes about her life in Tennessee. Lovely, peaceful reading. I very much appreciate her perspective on life, both human and otherwise.

This is the author's account of a "backyard year" that actually spanned a few years, with chapters themed after the seasons. I could empathize a lot with the author's experience of the joys and sorrows
of living and trying to keep things alive in a world seemingly in a death spiral. I loved how she emphasized death and rebirth, creating a book that was at times heartbreaking and others hilarious. Chock full of metaphors and quotes for tree-huggers and bird watchers of the world. I know a book is good when I'm sad it's over, but I feel like a lot of what she shared in it will persist as long as my memory.… (mere)
