Spring Rain: A Life Lived In Gardens

by Marc Hamer Author

From the acclaimed author of How to Catch a Mole comes this new book about the joy of gardening, among other small pleasures. Best read while sitting under a tree, Spring Rain serves as a memoir for professional gardener Marc Hamer, and introduces the reader to Hamer's view of a garden's beauty. From Hamer's childhood in the north of England, to his time spent homeless living in the Welsh countryside, to his time as a rail worker, Hamer has lead a varied life. Now, writing from the comfort of his home in Cardiff, Hamer reminisces about his childhood and reconciles his younger self with the man he has become.
