Year at Brandywine Cottage : Six Seasons of Beauty, Bounty, and Blooms

A Year at Brandywine Cottage is an inspirational technique and selection guide by David L. Culp. Due out 31st March 2020 from Timber Press, it's 336 pages and will be available in hardcover and ebook formats.

This is a beautifully formatted and well written book following a calendar year through the seasons (there are 6 chapters, summer and winter by themselves and early and late spring and fall treated as 4 distinct entities). Between the photographs and descriptions of different aspects of the cottage gardens the author and his partner have developed over the past 3 decades are naturalistic arrangements of flowers and greenery for inspiration as well as simple and elegant recipes.

The photography is top notch and beautiful. This would make a superlative coffee table book for gardeners, especially those from the eastern continental climate in North America.

Really lovely book, five stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes
