Perfect 19th C setting escapism for garden (nature) and people observers.

This novella and a children‘s book we read sparked a question for the kids and I about the use of the word “garden.” Being Americans, we refer to the grassy area surrounding the house the “yard” or “lawn” and “garden” refers to planted vegetable/flower plots. How do fellow Littens distinguish between grass and planted plots?

Inquiring minds want to know! 🤔

Tamra By the way, Elizabeth‘s garden for her is what books are to Readers. 😁 (edited) 2y
kathedron Being British, I call the whole of our outside space "the garden". If I say, "I'm in the garden" I could be mowing the lawn, tending the veg plot or flower bed, or sitting out on the decking with a book! 2y
Cathythoughts She loved her garden so. I love mine , only hoping for some fine weather to be out there ❤️ 2y

Tamra @Cathythoughts me too! 🌻🌞 2y
CarolynM In Australia we tend to use garden and yard interchangeably and both those terms include a lawn. The book is delightful, isn't it? 2y
Tamra @CarolynM yes, I loved Elizabeth‘s willingness to cast off society and opinion for what gave her pleasure. She buys fewer clothes for more seeds. 👍🏾 I laughed out loud at the comment that it wasn‘t a matter of the presence of dirt in a house, but whether it showed (hence the choice of a brown colored rug). 😂😂 Sharp & witty writing all over the place. I‘d like to get it in print to reread. 2y

Charming chatter about gardening, guests, and life in the German countryside.

Tamra Sounds perfect right now. 2y
merelybookish @Tamra I really enjoyed it and it was funny in parts too. I guess early 20th c. books by aristocratic women is my pandemic jam. 2y
Tamra @merelybookish I just borrowed the audio. 😁 2y

merelybookish @Tamra I listened to it as well. I hope you enjoy! 🌱 2y
Butterfinger I'm reading this. Are you reading for a Goodreads discussion? 2y
merelybookish @Butterfinger No. Just impulse. Saw it on my audio app. I've had it on my TBR for years. And it was not what I expected, in a good way. 2y
Butterfinger @merelybookish what is wrong with me? I am reading Elizabeth von Arnim, but it is The Enchanted April. Sorry. 2y

Homemade pizza (brushed olive oil, crispy bacon, caramelised onions, creamy goat cheese, arugula tossed in olive oil, lemon juice, a twist of salt & pepper, topped w/ balsamic glaze made from scratch), it‘s one of my favourite things to make for a laid back Friday evening. I‘m starting this delightful book, and Mr. S & I are finishing up the 2nd season of Stranger Things, so we can start the new season. Happy weekend!

batsy That looks and sounds so delicious! 2y
catebutler @batsy Thank you! I‘ll do different toppings depending on what we want, but this combo is one of my absolute favorites! 🤤 2y
erzascarletbookgasm What a pretty cover, and the pizza sounds amazing! Enjoy! 2y

I read this author strictly for the gardening bits. Her dreams of an all yellow garden. 💛
