"I stretch up, easing those back muscles, then hunker down again, nose nearer to the weeding. There's quite a comfort about this position, all one's person in close contact with the earth."Katharine Stewart lived, for many years, in an old school house with a large garden in the beautiful wild country near Loch Ness. This is a celebration of gardening, one of mankind's oldest pleasures. Month by month we are taken through a year in the life of Katharine's garden. The circle of the seasons is luminously evoked as we are told of the practicalities of gardening, cooking, bee-keeping and wine-making. Katharine's writing is full of warm, personal insights, good humour and a love of living things. The joy of nature extends from her garden into all aspects of life.
