Saraholdmum1 writes: How wonderful, a way to bring all the beauty of the garden
I love to garden ,was self employed for a few years and tended some super borders for those who couldn't do it themselves.
Now I am learning to knit and crochet for the first time, (left handed to boot).
From the cover alone this book looks to be inspirational, just can't wait to look inside and see what memories I could recreate and perhaps pass on to others.
Will keep my fingers crossed for the competition, but it is a must have book regardless!!
