Winter approaches

Earlier books that I have featured in these picture diaries seemed to have started in  the Spring, with the garden looking rather English and fresh and green. Preparation for this book has been going on for perhaps a year now, and all is ready, pretty much, for printing to start. The garden in November looks a tad less interesting, but just as English, with the November rain coming down.

The text was finalised a while back, the type has been set, the paper has arrived from Italy, as have the illustrations. Final detailed preparations are all that is left before the long slog of printing.
