I was really in need of a lovely relaxing read, and this beautiful graphic novel about finding peace and mental healing through gardening does exactly that!
It should come as no surprise to you, dear reader, that I am an enormous fan of books about witches. Obviously, when I first heard of Picklewitch and Jack, I knew I was going to fall in love with this charming rascal of a witch and her uptight, brainbox friend – and I did!
Since we moved into the house we currently live in, I’ve had more of an interest in gardening than ever before. I’ve got an array of kitchen herbs, pots of roses, two deeply rebellious buddleias, and thanks to my in-laws, a new row of tomato plants! As we rent, a lot of our plants are in pots on the patio, and so I was very interested to read Kate Bradbury’s book about rescuing a small paved garden. Unfortunately, I was disappointed.
