      A beautiful piece of writing, telling the story of what is happening in a garden over the course of a year but taken from diaries written over a number of years so you get a composite I do like how Monty Don writes, almost the same way as he speaks with the same turns of phrase Nice to dip into to get some garden inspiration or just life inspiration.

    2. Carol Rasberry says:

      A gentle combination of self indulgence and gardening know how from the lovely Monty Don Makes me realise my modest patch is okay and doesn t need to be approved of by others.

    3. Beth Bonini says:

      Monty Don is an amazing writer and such a profound thinker and observer Although my gardening skills not to mention interest are minute compared to his, this was still an inspiring book And even if you are not a gardener at all, his descriptions of nature and seasonal change and human ageing would make it worthwhile reading.This is definitely one to keep on the bedside table and dip in and out of throughout the year I like to pick the current day and see what he wrote about it on various years T [...]

      I m currently re reading this wonderful book I first read it at the tail end of last summer, and with pages I was lost in Don s simple, elegant prose his photography enhances the experience, adding colour and shape to the descriptions he lays out like a gentle lullaby If you have ever enjoyed a garden this book brings out the joy of even the most frustrating moments I cannot recommended this book too strongly For me it rekindled my love for gardening for which I will be forever in Don s debt.

    5. Tara says:

      This is a book to dip in and out of, but it is a delight to read Monty s engaging writing style and his capturing of the seasons, weather, everyday events, celebrations and disasters with a positive and honest edge are a delight, and make for uplifting and inspiring writing I need to enjoy my garden this year than I already do, but to observe and record those moments Monty has inspired me.

    6. Jennifer Burriss says:

      Like Monty s style, he writes as he talks Also liked the fact that the book is in small sections so the reader is able to pick it up and put it down at will, but found the fact that he dodges from year to year instead of writing in sequence quite confusing to follow at first Finished this book eventually and enjoyed it but think it is definitely a pick up and put down book rather than a read all at once type.

    7. Sonia says:

      I have been completely inspired At times I was mildly frustrated by the clever format the book is a calendar year but each entry is from a different year over an 18 year period , I would have liked to have stuck to the same year and learned what happened next But it wasn t a real issue I love Monty Dons writing style and his openness fabulous book.

    8. Julie says:

      A beautiful piece of writing,telling the story of what is happening in the garden for each day of the year But taken from diaries written over many years, so in day order rather than chronological order Monty Don writes so poetically, a must for any fan.

    9. Andy Gilroy says:

      Best gardening book ever Wonderful mix of gardening, life, writing, reflection, gardening, living, working, gardening A continuing inspiration to get out there, do stuff and be.

    10. Ann-Marie says:

      This is a wonderful book

    11. Lez says:

      I have read this book 3 times now Love the way Monty writes Reminds me why I got into gardening.

    12. Steph says:

      Was trying to read a day per day but got to far ahead of myself,

    13. Pamela Hanrahan says:

      A book to return to over and over You needn t necessarily be a gardener to appreciate the moods Monty evokes but if you are then it s an essential.
