My Occupation author, poet, photographer, and garden consultant
My Bio Judith Cody is a national award winning poet, author, and photographer who is widely published throughout the United States and abroad. Her visual arts have won awards, and appeared in juried shows. One of her poems and archives is in the Smithsonian Institution’s permanent collection. She is also a rosarian, and she is devoted to teaching organic rose gardening, which led to the idea for this book. She has received a lifetime achievement award from the University of California’s Master Gardener Program.
She believes that great pictures of roses need to tell us more. Her poetical style demonstrates this. Photographed by natural light, the photos in this book tell us that this is the breathtaking rose we can still discover in beloved gardens everywhere. These organic roses are ravishing, whether in wind, rain or fog, they seem illuminated with all their historical, and mysterious glory. They are radiant beneath the ever-shifting sunbeams of the seasons.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Right now there are many files on how to grow sustainalble, organic roses filling my hard drive. Very soon, I tell myself, I should sit down and do the hard work of editing and finishing this rose gardening guide in progress. But until then. . .it's great to be outdoors on a sky blue day in a beautiful garden somewhere new, and searching for roses and flowers to photograph. My next photo book will probably be on roses. Or poetry and roses? Or roses and ?
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
It is a perfect size to carry with you when you are walking in a garden. This book will also help you to identify roses.
