Description
"All the other stuff that's associated with gardening—the part it has played in our history, its extraordinary connections to other parts of the world, the remarkable and sometimes wayward personalities of its practitioners, even its economics—have always seemed to me to offer an inexhaustible treasure trove of fascinating material. It's this cornucopia of delights that Philippa Lewis has mined so rewardingly in EYCDITGWAG, as we'll call it for the sake of brevity. Richly illustrated and packed with extracts from letters, diaries and novels, EYCDITGWAG looks at gardens as places for escape and inspiration, fresh air and exercise, fire and water, sun and shade, eating, drinking and smoking, love, children, games, parties, birds and beasts—such as the bizarre menagerie that Dante Gabriel Rossetti maintained in his back garden, which included two wombats, a marmot and an armadillo. And if that's not more interesting than when to plant your onions, I don't know what is."—Gardens Illustrated
