The Secret Life of the Georgian Garden reviewed in the Times

We think we know what Georgian landscape gardens looked like. We’ve all wandered round Stourhead or Stowe on a Sunday afternoon, poking our heads into classical temples and gloomy grottoes, admiring the artfully placed clumps of trees and the smooth expanses of water. We’ve gazed at the prints that line the tea-room walls, scenes in which women in pretty frocks and Gainsborough hats admire the views across the park while men strike poses and admire the women. Elegance and quiet serenity are the order of the day.

However, according to Kate Felus, the Georgian garden has a secret life.

Until I was eight years old, I had never heard the word “dawn”. Then, early one morning, I woke up to the radio playing loudly in the living room, and found my mother and father chain-smoking as they listened to the declaration of a coup. Their faces darkened as the day broke. It was 12 September 1980, the first time I saw the dawn.

On 16 July, early in the morning, Turkish children were woken by the television to find their similarly terrified parents.
