This book, following a weekend on the Somme with Mary Freeman as she visits the old front line and back areas, is about the soldiers who wrote poetry and those with whom they lived, fought and, in many cases died. It takes the reader to to the places where they saw action and to the cemeteries and memorials where those who did not survive, rest or are commemorated. Her uncanny knowledge of the battlefields and her deep understanding of poetry, brings to life the men who shared hardship and horror together, men who experience comradeship forged in conditions that are beyond comprehension today, men with normal desires and aspirations who happened to be wearing uniform and some who chose to express themselves through the medium of poetry.

When Bryce and Marian Somes took a whistle-stop tour of France in 1986, they couldn't have imagined the lasting effect it would have on their future. Having tried to coax various gardens to flourish along on the harsh Western Australian coastline and later moving on from suburban gardening in Melbourne, the Someses found 26 acres of bare but beckoning land in Victoria's Gippsland in 1992 and set about creating what Bryce lovingly referred to as a French folly. The ever-expanding garden, which now includes an olive grove and vineyard in addition to the orchard and extensive perennial and picking gardens inspired by Monet's Giverny, surround a rustic rammed earth farmhouse and barn that are also continually evolving.

Excerpt from Peeps Into Picardy Picardy - how pleasantly the word trips from the lips - oi all the old French provinces is any more sweetly named? There are few English men who can hear it quite unconcerned: anglo-french events of many centuries, grave and gay, great world-movements invasion, war, pageantry all come crowding and Jostling through our memory, to be in turn swamped by souvenirs of its stupendous architecture.
