Now, I think the time has come to tell you about a little love thing going on with me --no, unfortunately Chris Martin (of Coldplay) has yet to discover my undying devotion, this is with a lady called Caroline Zoob! She makes the most fantastic creations..her sewing, I feel,is unrivaled! You probably have recognised this book in my sidebar - I have had it for 2 years and it has inspired lots of cushions for my various nieces and nephew and baby showers/birthdays. I also had a go at painting some treasure boxes - which didn't come out as good as the ones in the book but filled them with small goodies for Christmas.

The author of Virginia Woolf’s Garden, Caroline Zoob, lived at Monk’s house for 10 years as a tenant (The National Trust lets the house out to a live-in tenant in exchange for upkeep of the garden and grounds.) Zoob does a fantastic job chronicling the history of Virginia and Leonard’s life at the house, from the moment they first purchased it in 1919 until their deaths decades later. The book details how the garden was a source of pleasure and a place to escape from the chaos of London but was also, at times, a source of friction between Virginia and Leonard due to large amounts of time and money he spent on it. Virginia occasionally complained of the financial upkeep of the garden, once stating “We are watering the earth with our money!
