Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Renowned garden photographer Mick Hales has traveled around the globe to capture some of the greatest gardens in the world. Large and small, elaborate and intimate, public and private, tropical, subtropical, and temperate, all manner of gardens are featured in this lavish book filled with spectacular photographs. Designed in the same format as the best-selling "Earth From Above: 365 Days</I>, the book shows these magnificent gardens to their best advantage, capturing all their texture, color, and light in beautiful reproductions. <BR>More than 150 gardens in the U.S. and Canada; Mexico, Brazil, and the Dominican Republic; England, Ireland, and Northern Ireland; France, Italy, Spain, and Portugal; and India, Sri Lanka, Bali, and China make their appearance here, accompanied by informative texts by the photographer himself. Hales is a wonderful guide, offering not only the basics of location, ownership, and design of each garden but also valuable insights that will add to the viewer's interest and pleasure. Perfect for gardeners, photography enthusiasts, and armchair travelers alike, this splendid volume will make an ideal gift.

Review:

"This book's novel approach to showcasing international gardens allows the author considerable freedom to display lovely photographs of widely varying scenes, while allowing readers to take each image literally one day at a time. Garden photographer Hales (The Fine Art of Flower Arranging; etc.) shares photos of more than 150 gardens from North America, Europe and Asia. He arranges the gardens alphabetically, from The Abkhazi Garden in Victoria, British Columbia (on January 1), to A Zelun Garden, in Chengdu Province, China (on December 31). Although the gardens don't seem to overtly correspond with the dates, their day by day positioning may help readers appreciate the photographs more slowly and carefully. Some gardens receive numerous pages (for five days in late August, Hales focuses on Portugal's Quinta da Bacalhôa gardens), while others appear only once (such as Jones Wood Garden in New York City and The Elizabeth Lawrence Garden, in Charlotte, North Carolina). Each image appears full-bleed on a right-hand page, and brief commentary accompanies it on the left-hand page. Green thumbs and non-gardeners alike should find enjoyment in these calming, inspiring vistas." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
