Over 20 years ago, while browsing in the beautiful and charming shop that is primrose hill books, i came across an english author and artist/illustrator called sara midda
Jessica, who runs the bookshop with her lovely husband, had signed copies as sara was a local artist. I bought in and out of the garden and was instantly smitten. It evoked the english gardens of sara’s childhood and had the most glorious delicate illustrations and hand painted text. Dozens of illustrations would keep me fixated to every page while reading the subtle descriptions of time spent in the garden.
