Excerpt from Country Pleasures: The Chronicle of a Year Chiefly in a Garden

Of the garden itself it may be said that it possesses no especial advantages either of soil or of climate; but it is large and old - extending over several acres and having considerable variety in the shape of wood and water, orchard and lawn, dingle and meadow. The reader who cares to know anything of the adjacent country - which is not usually thought to be attractive - will find it described in some of the later Notes and particularly in those headed 'the Glen, 'the Clough, ' and 'the Moss.' It would have been better, perhaps, if these could have appeared in the earlier pages; but, having been written at special seasons, the arrangement of the book re quired that they should remain where they now are.
