One of the things I picked up at the Book Thing this weekend was the April 1991 issue of House & Garden, entitled "England Today"... or yesterday! It is fun to look through magazines of this era and see what's dated and what's stood the test of time. Because so many of the houses they featured are historic, they haven't changed too much.
Among the finds in this issue are an articles about Gertrude Jekyll's gardening style by Adrien Higgins, currently the garden writer at the Washington Post; a garden folly once leased successively by David Hicks, Charles Beresford-Clark and Veere Grenney; the country estate Oare House, redone by John Stefanidis; the architect Zaha Hadid and an essay by Nick Ashley on life after Laura (Ashley).
I can't wait to take some time and really read through all of the articles.
