Touring Texas Gardensby Jessie G. Stephens
Synopses & Reviews
Beautiful, accessible, even educational, public gardens offer delights for travelers who want to get close to Nature. Touring Texas Gardens is the guidebook for them. With the book in hand, visitors can explore a variety of gardens: botanical, estate, lily, rose, herb, cottage, wildflower, and more. Private gardens open to the public only seasonally or by appointment are included, as are many spectacular display gardens privately operated.
This friendly book also offers insight into the human dimension of gardening. It asks and answers the human questions. Whose vision does a particular garden embody? When and why was it built? How did an English estate garden, for instance, end up on a hillside in Mineral Wells, complete with black swans and reflecting pools?
Beautiful, accessible, even educational public gardens offer delights for travelers all over the state who want to get close to Nature. Visitors can explore a variety of gardens: botanical, estate, lily, rose, herb, cottage, wildflower, and more.
