In 1987 Roy Strong was asked to write an occasional column reflecting his quintessentially English way of life. "A Country Life" brings these pieces together, portraying the passing of the seasons in what the author describes as his "beloved adopted county" of Herefordshire. It is a wide-ranging kaleidoscope of memories and observations, embracing the countryside, gardens, cooking and remembrances of things both long gone and only yesterday. Strong writes lyrically of the arrival of the bright green tarragon shoots in spring; of the delights of eating al fresco; of making sorbets from medlar, blackberry and quince; and of the russet beech hedges in winter. Quinquagesima sees the arrival of Lent lilies; a bad winter is signalled by frantic bee activity among the drones; and Christmas brings a winding down before the New Year. This is a portrait of life in the English countryside which seems as old as time itself.
