Book Review
Combining lovely scrapbook pages with a wealth of inspiration, recipes, and design suggestions, the Spring Notebook from Carolyne Roehm is the last seasonal title in her series. With a gorgeous matte cover disguising a practical spiral binding, you can refer to this frequently, and for years to come, without affecting its sturdiness one bit.

Separate areas focus on individual types of blooms--all the spring classics are here, including daffodils, tulips, pansies, and peonies. Discussion is mainly about the arranging and choosing of plants--for details on such practicalities as pest control or bulb rot, look elsewhere. Even a few favorite seasonal edibles are addressed--recipes for rhubarb, strawberries, and asparagus will have your mouth watering, and most, such as simple Rhubarb Bread, are straightforward and without a...

From Booklist
When does a crafts book become a coffee-table one? In the hands of designer Roehm, author of At Home with Carolyne Roehm (2001) and A Passion for Flowers (1997), among others, that's when. She combines luscious in-your-face color photographs, minimal text, and a back-of-the-book section featuring supply basics and step-by-step photographic instructions on how to wrap the perfect gift, all of which provides all the right information. Ideas are divided into seasons: spring devoted to sorbets; summer, color and geometry; autumn, rich reds, oranges, and browns; and winter, with its panoply of brocades and paeans to Valentine's Day. An instant classic that emphasizes the author's definition of gift-wrapping as a wondrous form of self-expression. Barbara Jacobs

Book Review
A domestic dervish whose Summer Notebook and Fall Notebook skillfully blended seasonal advice on gardening, entertaining, and crafting, Carolyne Roehm now turns her thoughts to winter in this, the third installment in the series. Believing that "winter is the most encouraging season for the gardener ... the only time of the year when the creative juices of the plantsman are given free reign," Roehm offers expert information on a wide variety of horticultural activities suitable for the season, including forcing bulbs and branches, growing and arranging hardy hellebores, and creating a winter-garden checklist.

Not to be outdone are the holidays, namely Christmas, New Year's and Valentine's Day, which Roehm illustrates down to the finest detail. From delectable meals and to-die-for decorations to vibrant floral arrangements...

Book Description
Nothing lights up a room like flowers. Whether it's baby's breath draped on a table at a wedding reception, clusters of daffodils in small pots scattered throughout a living room or a bucket of sunflowers on a picnic table, a strategically placed bouquet has the power to create a mood and make us feel special. Unfortunately, most of us don't know how to display flowers properly, and they often end up clumsily thrown together in a vase. In A Passion for Flowers, Carolyne Roehm teaches readers how to create arrangements that set off a flower's natural beauty. She discusses the overall features of dozens of the most popular flowers and helps readers understand how these elements relate to each other. Though the book is filled with ideas for brightening holidays and special occasions, Roehm stresses that...

Book Review
"Autumn is a season that lures us indoors, and shifts our focus from the garden, the pool, or the beach to the home." The magic and mystique of the fall season are splendidly captured in Carolyn Roehm's Fall Notebook: Garden, Hearth, Tradition, Home, a collection of recipes, crafts, entertainment tips, and garden projects. In her introduction to the book, Roehm--former fashion designer turned author--writes, As a gardener, I feel a certain sadness as I am forced to break a bond that I have spent the spring and summer nurturing. Although it is easy for one to become nostalgic during this time, it is necessary to move forward because it is crucial to prepare for the long winter that lies ahead ... although those beautiful blooms are a long way off and we must put our garden to bed, we shift to a new buzz of life that is...

Book Review
Good intentions tend to bloom and fade like a perennial: next year, you'll dig up the border by the front walk and install those delphiniums you've always wanted; next year, you'll put up those abundant tomatoes so you can savor them during the depths of winter. To realize those good intentions, try organizing them with fashion designer and author Carolyne Roehm's Summer Notebook. Or, if your creative fields lie fallow once in a while (and whose don't?), borrow the seed of an idea from Roehm, who broadcasts her favorites for everyone's benefit.

This is a notebook (complete with grid paper for planning, lined pages for notes, and pouches for clippings), garden-design and flower color-combination guide, garden journal, recipe book--in essence, it's an idea book, a place to record your ideas and learn from Roehm's. The...
