'Endless Pleasure' is a lush celebration of the gardening life - and the collectible objects that accompany it. Have you spotted an alluring garden tool in a second-hand shop and wondered what on earth it is? Or felt the urge to start collecting tyre-swan garden ornaments? In 'Endless Pleasure' Trevor Nottle, author and plantsman, takes us to the garden and reveals myriad ways to enjoy the purest of pleasures. As a passionate collector of plants and gardening paraphernalia, Trevor reveals the stories behind tools, ornaments, prints and drawings, books and decorative arts. He draws on the collection of the new Australian Museum of Gardening at Adelaide's Carrick Hill to illustrate gardenalia both useful and deeply strange. Garden art through the centuries illuminates 'Endless Pleasure'. And there are wonderful contributions from gardeners and gardening writers, who provide recipes, remarks on their gardening experiences, their favourite tools and memories of gardens past. This is a book for when the day is done and the tools are safely back in the shed. Sit back and enjoy its endless pleasures.
