New Missives from My Garden
158pp (21.000 words)
Paula Almqvist has drawn together her best columns from the popular women’s magazine Brigitte Woman. Entertaining, upbeat and (self-)ironic, she chats her way through beds, bushes and borders, showing how you can get even more enjoyment out of your favourite place. She reports on the latest trends, describes her favourite colours of flowers, evokes gardening flea markets and floral holiday souvenirs, and jokes about black holes in the garden, where you can lose everything from gloves to saws – as well as much, much more.
