A Very Small Corner of Paradise
Loveday Lewes Gee Other books by Loveday Lewes Gee
People have gardened for well over a thousand years at Llanllyr, in the fertile Aeron valley: Celtic saints, Cistercian nuns, Elizabethan squires profiting from the Dissolution, Victorian gentry and, today, farmers and entrepreneurs. In many ways Llanllyr's story reflects the wider social history of gardens in Britain. In the last quarter-century, the grounds have undergone a transformation into a series of beautiful and ingenious garden scenes reflecting the historical periods with which Llanllyr is particularly associated. Loveday Lewes Gee - art historian, heir to Llanllyr and creator of today's gardens - brings past and present vividly to life in this little book.
