This small volume, aiming to be both informative and entertaining, contains engravings by contemporary artists and a foreword by Prince Charles. Twelve chapters endeavour to capture the atmosphere of successive months, encompassing the minutiae of plant and wildlife behaviour in the garden and hedgerow. The author celebrates the intimacies of a rural world in an idyllic setting, but with an eye to modern existence and an appreciation of progress.
