Booktopia Comments

"Arranged month-by-month this delightful memoir style journal discusses everything from plants and flowers to meandering thoughts on how gardeners work and useful recipes that come to mind. Amongst the stunning photographs of landscapes, cakes and flowers there are spaces for 'little garden thoughts' to be noted down.

Reviewed by Karen Coleman, Booktopia Buzz Editor"

Product Description

Nestled in the green and rolling hills of the Southern Highlands of New South Wales is Whitley, a gardeners paradise. Surrounded by beautifully manicured hedges, this property boasts majestic oak trees, roses and maples, pretty cottage flower beds, romantic Italian hillside plantings, Australian native bush and secret vegetable patches.

The beautifully laid out gardens are refuge to peacocks, parrots and possums while picturesque statues and fountains provide glimpses of the gothic past. Yet Whitley is also home, as well as sanctuary and inspiration, for gardener Jenny Ferguson.

In A Year in My Garden, Jenny welcomes us into her private world and shares the glory of the passing seasons at Whitley. Through peaceful times of everyday pleasures and life's little ups and downs, Jenny's garden is a constant and uplifting backdrop. Lavishly illustrated and featuring seasonal recipes, A Year in My Garden is the perfect escape for busy lives - sit back and enjoy a quiet moment in this delightful garden.

      Comments about A Year In My Garden:

      I bought this book as a gift for a friend to read during a long convalescence following surgery to be done later this year.
      She lived in the Southern Highlands so I knew it would have instant appeal.
      She could hardly stop herself from reading it as soon as she opened it.
      I should love to have got lost in its pages and stunning photos as well, so she's lucky to have actually received it from me!
