My Garden, the City and Me : Rooftop Adventures in the Wilds of London Hardback
by Helen Babbs
This book charts, over one year, her first steps with plants and the discoveries she makes along the way as she tussles with garden pests, watches falcons from the top of a skyscraper and beachcombs along the strand by the River Thames.
As she draws a portrait of her secret green world high up above the urban sprawl, we become aware of the unique ecology of London and the immense web of life that its green spaces support.
