'In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.' - Margaret Atwood.
Through evocative passages and quotes inspired by the countryside, this stunningly packaged book offers a rare opportunity to slow down, step back and receive the natural restorative power of nature. The contemplative words will transport you to a space of quiet reflection as you simply sit... and be.
'Soon will the high Midsummer prompts come in
Soon will the musk carnations break and swell
Soon shall we have gold-dusted snapdragon
Sweet-William with his homely cottage-smell
And stocks in fragrant blow
Roses that down the alleys shine afar
And open, jasmine-muffled lattices' ...
Mathew Arnold, Thyrisis: A Monody to Commemorate the Author's Friend, Arthur Hugh Clough
