William Shakespeare's garden at New Place in Henley Street was typically Elizabethan, consisting of a flower garden, a kitchen garden and an orchard. Amongst the produce grown here would be Leeks, Apples, Cherries, Figs, Apricots, Dewberries, Cabbage, Carrots, Gooseberries, Peaches, Pears, Turnips and Gourds, as well as Roses, Lilies, Oxlips, Columbine, Daffodils, Pansies, Sweet-briar, Hoddling Violets, Marigolds, Honey-Suckle and not forgetting potato and a host of herbs. These fruits, vegetables and flowers can be found in this coloring book together with various trees such as Oak, Ash and Chestnut. The 'colorist' is invited to use their imagination in the coloring of the pictures in the preferred medium of pencil, crayon, watercolor or other, thus creating a simple line drawing into a colorful masterpiece. It is also possible for the 'colorist' to add extra interest to the picture by the addition of extra drawing where it might be considered plausible.
