Short and entertaining little book highlighting the 12 months of the year as gleaned from the noted English gardener/naturalist Rosemary Verey (if the foreward by Prince Charles is any indication).Every month contains Verey's short insights from living on her estate in the Cotswolds. I enjoyed her observations as well as the pen and ink drawings by various artists scattered throughout. This book would, I think, would make a good companion piece to The Inland Island, by Josephine Johnson:Nice boo [...]
Month by month musings on life in the British countryside. Verey is an an engaging and companionable guide. Seeing that the author is garden expert Rosemary Verey I assumed this was a book about gardening, but found this is not the case. There is gardening in it but it is not exclusively about gardening. It is a paean instead to life lived and closely observed in the British countryside, a quieter, more peaceful way of life. Originally published in 1989, with an introduction by the Prince of Wal [...]
I loved her musings on the year in an English garden. I wish she would have used more descriptive prose when discussing the parts of the year with no active vegetables or flowers. She does so well describing how things look during the summer months that I could almost imagine it, but kind of fails during the colder months. still, I'm pleased with the book.
I really enjoy Rosemary Verey's work, but this book was a bit of a disappointment. It is divided into the twelve months, but there is not enough detail for each month. There isn't enough personal observation, enough connection for me. She doesn't sound passionate, and that was what I wanted.
Very enjoyable month by month look at the year round activities in the garden by one of Britain's gardening greats. A soothing read.
When the world wearies, and society ceases to satisfy, there is always the garden (or books about gardens)
