I was at the Dalkey Book Festival on a beautiful sunny Sunday with Diarmuid Gavin this week. We discussed garden books we loved, what influenced us and what we like. It was great fun and we were speaking in a huge tent in a wonderful ‘secret’ walled garden on Sorrento Road. We had a great day and the festival was, as usual a great event. Thanks to festival director Sian Smyth for having us and very much looking forward to next year.
