Bookmark in Splding has chosen Gardening in Slippers: New Poems for Garden Lovers as its book of the week.
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.
From ants and weeds to early frost and slippery moss, all the delights and minor tribulations of having your own patch are wittily captured.
There are odes to bumblebees and earthworms and even a poem about the quandary of whether or not you can manage to have lunch outside today!
So whether you are celebrating the robin who joins you as you dig or coping admirably with the irritation of a snapped handle, these short poems are the perfect thing to relax with during your well-earned tea break.
