I don’t care what the weatherman says • Forget the forecast, for John Lewis-Stempel, the most accurate way of predicting the weather is to read what the flowers are saying, come rain or shine

The poor man’s weatherglass

Beasts and butterflies • The restoration of a 13th-century castle as a summer residence in 1875 created one of the most colourful and delightful masterpieces of the Gothic Revival, as John Goodall discovers

Beyond our wildest dreams? • Wilder farming is as close to a silver bullet for the future management of our marginal lands as we’ll find and it’s high time to embrace this new way, contends Ben Goldsmith

In the first of a two part series about internal and external architectural details, COUNTRY LIFE’S EXECUTIVE EDITOR, Giles Kime asks Jeremy Spencer of Janine Stone what lessons we have to learn from the past

Upstairs, downstairs • The Victorian terrace is one of the unsung heroes of 19th-century architecture, not only elegant and space efficient, but also highly adaptable to the changing demands of modern life, believes Clive Aslet

The perfect match • Blue and green accessories, selected by Amelia Thorpe

Phoenix from the flames • Two glorious houses that burnt to the ground–one in Herefordshire in 1999...
