Following the success of her first four humorous poetry books, Liz Cowley now returns with a new and fresh collection on gardening, written in her inimitable, light-hearted style. Often clipping and pottering first thing in the morning, Liz turns her wicked wit on ants and weeds, early frost and slippery moss, and the many triumphs and trials of gardening. All the delights and minor tribulations are wittily captured, from bees helicoptering, lunch outside or inside, to irritation about a snapped handle. In observant, whimsical, poignant and highly readable lines, Liz's new collection of over a hundred poems in different styles is an enjoyable journey to the happiness of the amateur gardener.

About the Author

Liz Cowley has had a long career as an advertising copywriter, and has always enjoyed gardening in her spare time. By her own admission no gardening expert, she finds her outside space a perfect antidote to stress. Through her interest in wild flowers, she acted for several years as creative advisor to Plant Talk, a botanical magazine read in 80 countries. Having enjoyed writing poetry for her own enjoyment from an early age, Liz’s first humorous collection came out in 2008 and took the top poetry spot on Amazon. Two of her collections were adapted for a stage show in Dublin and London in 2010. She lives in Putney, London, and is Britain’s only gardening poet. She loves going to flower shows with her husband for gardening inspiration.
