"...Centuries later in 1952, architectural historian David Verey and his wife Rosemary Verey, fell in love with the house and moved in.  As keen gardeners, both spent many hours transforming the grounds into a place that enjoys international acclaim for its beauty." -excerpt, Barnsley House HERITAGE

BOOK REVIEW by Dan McCarthy - Garden Designer to Prince Charles, Elton John, billionaires and everyman. - Rosemary Verey, in her forties; with no training in gardening; with only four acres in Cotswold; with scant financial support, metamorphosed into the undisputed Queen of traditional English Gardening.  She authored 18 best-selling books; advised fashion luminary Oscar de la Renta; was the 'must have' garden designer to HRH Prince Charles, Sir Elton John, King Hussein, American millionaires, billionaires and the New York Botanical Garden.  Verey transformed a small grass plot into arguably the most photographed garden ever; attracting 30,000 visitors annually...[Robinson] illuminates the personal characteristics that catapulted Verey from a supportive, compliant, impecunious housewife and mother of four, into the acclaimed authority on traditional garden design, recipient of the Order of the British Empire.  The author explains the appeal of Verey's self-effacing, empowering mantra; "If I can do it, so can you.  Just get on with it!"  {cont}

"And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest."
~Percy Bysshe Shelley, 1820 The Sensitive Plant
