Overview

'One of the most thrilling moments on our farm occurred ten years ago when I found a single wild flower growing on a grassy bank. It was not particularly rare - a common spotted orchid - but it was like discovering a pot of gold - or perhaps, more accurately, the promise of gold. It was a sign that recovery was possible from even the most inauspicious situation.'

In his new book, Monty Don chronicles a year in his garden at Longmeadow and further afield on his farm.
Hibernating hedgehogs, dogs under the table, wrens in the pantry and the occasional owl that flaps into the bedroom: all have a place alongside the yearly cycle of growth and renewal.

Each season has something different to delight in - from the primroses and bluebells of spring, to butterflies that colour summer skies and the crowds of migrating swallows that herald the coming of autumn. This book is an ode to the ever-surprising and comforting presence of nature. In exquisitely written prose, reflecting the best of nature writing, this book offers an opportunity to walk alongside Monty and experience the commonplace miracles and rhythms of nature through his eyes.
