The evenings are stretching out, the garden is looking perfect (well, in my dreams) and I’ve found the perfect book to inspire you gardeners while you relax after your labours. It’s titled Four Hedges A Gardener’s Chronicle by Clare Leighton. Originally written in 1935 this follows a year through Clare’s garden. Illustrated with woodcuts by Clare it is beautiful and absorbing. So get a comfortable recliner, a glass of wine and settle down in your own perfect garden.
Of course you don’t have to be a gardener to enjoy it, I’m not being gardenist.
