About this deal

It’s one of a (not very) regular series of posts about gardens and houses we’ve owned over the years. As another reviewer noted, in the words of LP Hartley, "the past is a foreign country; they do things differently there," and perhaps it is those glimpses into the domestic life of a far off land that compelled me to keep going: a lady in her long dinner dress and satin slippers perched precariously, balanced with a watering can to water the tops of her walls where trails of greenery fall. One day, sink sorted, kitchen painted, Jim was weeding along the side of the house and noticed angled bricks at ground level, similar to those above all the windows.

Very enjoyable read of an English couple creating a garden in a forsaken plot of land, in 1940s England. And I never stopped saying the most scathing things about gardeners, what fools they were always to be working and never enjoying their gardens, and what was the good of having a lovely garden if you never had time to sit in it and enjoy it?

Being so very historic, you’ll need to excuse the quality of these pre-digital photos – or don’t, if you’d rather not). And yet, the author brings up many large scale aspects of garden design I had not considered --ambitious construction of walls and paths, and creative cottage style gardening with trailing plants overlaying paths and use of rocks and placing creeping rock plants and thymes in tiny crevices. This book charmed me by the cover and hypnotized me with old-fashioned language, both British and Latin.

Barnsley, with its lively pink flowers gave us several gorgeous years of flowers from spring through November, but finally gave up. Over the next few weeks, I levered up every brick from the non-cemented floor and carried them up the stairs, through the kitchen and all the way out to the back garden. All used books might have various degrees of writing, highliting and wear and tear and possibly be an ex-library with the usual stickers and stamps.My only thought was to get the project under way before Walter took an interest in what I was doing and complicated matters with too much criticism and advice. getting lost) On a chilly-sunny March morning, we pulled into the small carpark at Overton Hill and the start of The Ridgeway.
