It’s a joy to spend time with famed English horticulturalist, and author of My Garden World, Monty Don as he watches wildlife, tends to his garden, and generally appreciates the natural world. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss Monty’s smooth narration of his year in the garden, giving listeners chronological observations of his time outdoors in Wales. Don, who received an O.B.E. for service to Great Britain, is the lead presenter of the BBC series “Gardeners’ World” and fans of that show will find much to love in the audiobook. Consisting of observations and short essays on everything from moles to primroses to wrens, this audiobook is one to cherish and gift.
