A Gardener's Life

Humorous, warm and earthy, this book celebrates the highs and lows of gardening, pregnancy and motherhood. Inspired by her gardening experiences at her home, "Renovator's Delight", in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, novelist and journalist Margaret Simons explores the rhythms of life in this book. Throughout she intimately reveals the rich compost heap of her own existence - its comedy and tragedy, successes and failures.

Despite her belief that gardening is what life is really all about, Margaret regrets that there is never enough time to enjoy this vital activity during the hurly burly of everyday life. She spurns conventional gardening books, saying "they assume readers have tidy lives and lots of time to plan white corners and scented flowers and foliage corners . . . I will never have clipped edges, and the fact that most plants bunged in the soil will grow. On this I depend".

Flouting convention, in this book Margaret shares her reality with you, evoking the simple joys and marvels of growing plants and raising chooks, goats and children.
