I so thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. For the passionate gardener, it's inspiring, but more importantly -- for me -- it's an intimate glimpse into Vita's thoughts and world, which is a treasure.
In realtà più che un libro è un manuale di giardinaggio, ma la vera cosa bella è l'oggetto libro in sè, con le foto del giardino dell'autrice e le illustrazioni dei fiori. per veri appassionati, comunque, o per chi capisce qualcosa di piante.
Vita is a wonderful writer, all the way around, but her writing on gardening is really a pleasure to read. This book set me to dreaming about the garden I'll have one day-- a true inspiration and highly readable.
fantastically descriptive of true gardening. captures the seasons - quite poetical
