A Terrace Life, by Anne Scott-James

"In August, if ever, one hopes to have a terrace life and to enjoy one's garden, not to be it's victim. Cool drinks, well-loved friends, a show of flowers and a rest from heavy labour are what the soul requires at the end of summer. Pots and tubs of long-lasting petunias, begonias, pelargoniums, fuchsias, pansies, lobelias and other bedding plants, and perhaps also of lilies and hydrangeas, are the perfect decoration."
