That is lovely ..thank you ..I shall have to chase that book and read more.

Remembering gardens is also very evocative isn't it. I remember my Grandparents garden...gravel drive, curved bench seat guarded by currant bushes,perennial fuchsias of rich clashing pinks and reds, orchard with rough grass and mossy bark, galvanized metal water butts with bubbling green algae..

As with Penelope Lively's memoir Ammonites and Leaping Fish this looks a book to be savoured and re-read. A must-have for my gardening shelf.

'The gardener is the only person to whom time gives more than it takes away.' Beverley Nichols.

Quoted from memory so may not be exactly right.

Cornflower

Yes, very much so.

Another good line.
