Feedback on the book:

Very happy to have contributed to Watercress and Daffodils, a lovely study of Kearsney Park in Dover by my friend and occasional colleague Clare Smith of @DoverArts (Charles Holland)

very happy to have contributed a short reflective essay ‘It Grows With Me: On Porous Borders’ to @clare_smith ‘s new book ‘Watercress & Daffodils’, published to accompany her beautiful film of the same name. A lovely, ruminative book with photography & haiku by @benjamin.a.hunt and excellent texts also from @charlesjholland @richard_taylor_artist_writer Karen R Jones, Philip Hutton, and of course dear Clare herself (Louisa Love)

This beautifully designed book is a wonderful addition to Clare Smith’s film of the same name. They are together an important legacy of the art in the park Kearsney interpreted project providing innovative and imaginative ways of engaging with Russel Gardens and the work of Thomas Mawson (Joanna Jones)

I met with Karen Jones today and she gave me a copy of the Watercress & Daffodils booklet. I just wanted to drop you a note to say how brilliant I thought it was! I can’t wait to watch the video now… (Jon Winder)

I’ve studied the book Igot from you and I found it interesting and exciting. (Janos Malina)
