Inspired by the 'Living With Candles' section in Susan Southam's beautiful book, Velvet Pears, I did a whip around and lit every candle in the house in the early evening, yesterday. Verdict? "You know Mum, this is such a beautiful house". Glad you noticed boys!
A lavishly illustrated and deeply personal story of the creation of an idiosyncratic Australian country garden, Velvet Pears is an inspirational book that is also full of practical ideas. Author Susan Southam created the amazing garden at Foxglove Spires on the land of an old dairy paddock, on the beautiful NSW South Coast in Tilba Tilba. Velvet Pears captures the essence of living simply and with the seasons, within a local community, with a sustainable lifestyle.
With the Aussie dollar the way it is at present, the www.bookdepository.co.uk has this gorgeous book at a great price at the moment.
Enjoy! A-M xx
