This charming short story by one of the greatest literary figures of the 20th century, Virginia Woolf, is set on a hot July day in Kew Gardens. Woolf creates an impressionistic world with snippets of conversation, wondering thoughts and sparks of colour. The gentle narrative drifts between different characters as they stroll through the world famous botanic gardens.

Kew Gardens was one of Woolf’s earlier works, first published privately in 1919 and then in 1921 in Monday or Tuesday, a collection of highly visual short stories.

In this new edition published by Kew, delightful new illustrations by Livi Mills accompany the text in this attractive gift book.
