Beware the man with the hoe


The Garden of Ignorance: The Experiences of a Woman in a Garden.

By Marion Cran,

London: Herbert Jenkins (this edition circa. 1931)

Flicking through, it’s hard to tell whether it’s a cautionary tale, or just an extended brag. She seems keen to share her experiences in dovecot, rose-garden, on lawns, and on terraces.

(Actually, this is a rather lovely book, so I’ve added it to my ‘beauty spot’ category as well.)

It won't surprise you to learn that I'm quite keen on books, and spend as much of my spare time as possible picking over second hand book stalls and charity book sales with my surprisingly delicate claws.
