'Arctic' weather keeps me inside today, when I'm supposed to be helping in a friend's garden, and when I have a list of labours pending as long as my arm anyway. Here are some of the garden/landscape/nature books I especially like:
Seen here are: 1. In My Garden, by Christopher Lloyd. 2. The End of Nature, by Bill McKibben. 3. The Geography of Nowhere, by James Howard Kunstler. 4. In Pursuit of Plants, by Philip Short. 5. The Lost Gardens of Heligan, by Tim Smit. 6. The Generous Earth, by Philip Oyler. 7. Spirit: Garden Inspiration, by Dan Pearson. 8. Wildwood: a Journey through Trees, by Roger Deakin. 9. Finding Home: Writing on Nature and Culture From 'Orion' Magazine, edited by Peter Sauer. 10. A Writer's Britain ( Landscape in Literature ), by Margaret Drabble. 11. Rothschild's Reserves: Time and Fragile Nature, by Miriam Rothschild and Peter Marren. 12. Gordon Ford: the Natural Australian Garden, by Gordon Ford with Gwen Ford.
