The Garden that We Made. By the Crown Princess of

Sweden. (The Girl's Own Paper. 10s. 8d.)—The English Princess carried with her to Sweden our love of garden making, and finding an opportunity at the old Castle which was among the wedding gifts she made Sofiero blossom abundantly. In order that this art might be popularized in Sweden the Crown Princess wrote a pleasant account of her labours, illustrated by many of her own sketches and photographs. Those who are now making gardens—not of the architectural type—will find a good many things in this book to interest them, especially the remarks about the grouping of colours in flower beds. To judge by the illustrations the garden must be a beautiful one, and it is sad to think that its creator can no longer enjoy it.
