From the cover: Now Katherine Swift, one of the most acclaimed gardening writers of her generation, takes a fresh look at the garden she created over twenty years in the grounds of the Dower House at Morville, meditating on everything from the terrain and its history, to the plants and trees, and the odd habits of the animals and humans who inhabit the garden.
Is everything in the landscape older than you think? Might a flower in your hat change your life? Can cats and cardoons cohabit? These are just some of the topics Katherine Swift considers in this enchanting companion volume to The Morville Hours.
With specially commissioned colour photographs of the garden by Jane Sebire and line drawings by Dawn Burford, the book follows the turning wheel of the Morville seasons, from the green shoots of spring, through summer and autumn, to the stark beauty of winter, and back to spring again. It is a journal full of surprises and enchantments that will appeal not only to gardeners, but to all who enjoy the natural world.
