The Painted GardenTHIS exquisite little book, illustrated with the most charming watercolour paintings you will ever see, takes the award for the most romantic gardening book to hit our desks this year. Every page is a work of art, and will leave you longing to learn how to paint.

The Painted GardenAs the author follows the progress of her garden throughout the course of a year, The Painted Garden is a timely reminder of the simple pleasures of gardening - watching seeds grow, watching birds sup nectar from flowers, the first blossoms in spring and drying herbs. Treat yourself to this book for Christmas.
