Rosemary Verey - A Countrywoman's Notes (2nd Hand Hardback)
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.
This informative and entertaining small volume contains engravings by contemporary artists and a foreword by Prince Charles.
This collection of miscellaneous pieces, originally published as articles in Country Life magazine between 1979 and 1987, is more resolutely English than Ms. Verey's many other garden books, which have won her a large following in America.
It wanders pleasantly into all the minutiae of daily life at Barnsley House, her country house in Gloucestershire. It speaks of hares and bees and wild flowers among the bracken, of lanes of holly and bramble, and of winter aconites in bloom in early February.

"A Countrywoman's Year may be the best book on gardening and the larger natural landscape to come from England in many a year. It is small, beautifully printed and handsomely illustrated with black-and-white prints by several artists. It speaks from the heart and it would be ruined, not improved, by photographs." - Google Review.
Rosemary Verey, OBE, VMH was an internationally known English garden designer, lecturer and garden writer who designed the notable garden at Barnsley House, near Cirencester in Gloucestershire, England.
