Painted Garden by Mary Woodin

Book Description

This beautifully illustrated personal sketchbook includes records of planting, harvesting, and blooming throughout the four seasons-plus a host of useful information for any gardener. Included are an illustrated list of herbs and their uses, a homespun recipe for waterproofing boots, and advice on distinguishing a robin's egg from a bullfinch's. Also peppered throughout are quotations and guidance from well-known gardening authorities, including Mary Russell Mitford, C. W. Earle, Vita Sackville-West, and Louise Beebe Wilder. Gardners everywhere will take great pleasure in this collection of intimate musings, thoughtful philosophy, and touching artwork. Mary Woodin was first trained as a textile designer at Manchester Metropolitan University in England and later as a ceramic designer at the Royal College of Art. She has worked in all areas of surface pattern design. Her major commissions include designs for the London Underground's South Kensington station.
