The ultimate Valentine's Day countdown - here are 10 romantic gestures to help sweep your partner off their feet!

This print is more than just visual art; it encapsulates historical intrigue and invites viewers to ponder on what could have been while appreciating the timeless elegance displayed by Anne Heseltine herself. One of the statistics that stuck with me from the book, I say, was that the Heseltines have shot a genocidal 300 grey squirrels for the protection of small birds and trees in just six months.

The photograph exudes an air of anticipation and possibility as Anne stands poised and elegant in her attire, embodying both strength and grace. Press photos have been available to the public for just a few years, and similar to baseball cards, they have attracted investors and collectors.

Arnold Slater's expertly captured image not only freezes a significant moment in time but also serves as a testament to his skill as a photographer with an eye for capturing emotion and significance within political spheres. The beautifully illustrated book has over 320 pages with both professional photographs and private family images. Written in both their voices, each taking different chapters, with warmth, amusing anecdotes and respect for the people who have helped advise and craft it' Garden Design Journal. Before I go, then, I ask if the book marks an end point of sorts; if the great project of their lives is complete.Oh, God, the little man who’s slightly in disgrace now, but I imagine that’s why she was given the job.

It reminds us that behind every powerful figure lies an equally remarkable partner who plays an integral role in shaping history. In the meantime, whatever is happening outside, however much those beyond the gate are screeching about Marmite and the royal yacht Britannia and immigrants’ teeth, the garden will endure. Full of rich photography, it is a celebration of four decades of horticultural triumphs and disasters . Her expression hints at the weighty responsibilities she may soon shoulder alongside her husband in this new chapter for British politics. For now, they’re describing the consequences of their great project’s exposure to the world with some of the same reluctance.

Today, there are about 13,000 varieties of plant catalogued here, among them 3,000 trees and shrubs in the arboretum, 400 different roses, 370 oaks and 342 snowdrops, which, I am almost certain, are those little white ones. At that moment, in the driveway visible through the window behind her, I see a rangy 83-year-old in corduroy trousers and purple socks, his luxuriant hair buffeted by the wind, whistling past in a golf buggy.

Beautifully illustrated over 320 pages with both professional photographs and private family images, this personal story of the creation of an extraordinary garden will delight horticultural experts and novices alike.

In such idyllic circumstances, the Heseltines are more enamoured of their garden than ever, and more determined to spend as much time there as they can.
