A Year at Clove Brook Farm, by Christopher Spitzmiller
Take a field trip into the delightful world of Christopher Spitzmiller, where he will introduce you to the house, gardens and critters of his delightful Millbrook, NY, farm. Filled with helpful advice on dahlia-planting, table-setting, baking, and hen-raising, this book is both aspirational and practical at the same time. The photography is divine, and it’s a joyful romp through the seasons that you’ll enjoy no matter if you’re an amateur or a professional gardener/baker/decorator/floral arranger. I have been giving this as a hostess gift to everyone I know!
