AUTHOR: Jillian Thorne
My Diary of Doorstep Delights
My Diary of Doorstep Delights
  • Description

In this charming and evocative collection of exquisite watercolours and reflections arranged as month-by-month diary entries, JillianThorne shares her joy in the countryside and gardens and, in particular, in the flowers and plants they contain.

“As the year unfolds I find myself making pilgrimages to all those places that reveal their seasonal wonders. The sight of the first spring blooms has always made my heart feel like bursting. As I wandered freely here and there discovering the glories of each month and trying to capture their amazing forms with photographs, drawings or water-colours, I decided to record my thoughts and feelings so that these visual delights, sounds and scents would forever remain in my memory.”

Jillian Thorne will be hailed as a modern Edith Holden: this is a new Country Diary for the twenty-first century, but yet one that reveals and revels in the timeless glories of the English landscape.

Jillian Thorne was born and brought up in Somerset. After a thirty year career in Primary Schools in Kingston- Upon-Thames and Barnes in Surrey and Exeter and Kingskerswell in Devon she took early retirement to discover the essence of freedom and peace and to indulge her passion for wild flowers. This book is the fruition of her “attempts to capture their elusive and fragile beauty during those initial and blessed days”.
