Format: Hardcover
The Garden At Night contains some fantastic photographs allowing readers a glimpse into public gardens at a time that they might not otherwise be able to see them.
The night garden has a mystery all its own and I was a little disappointed when the book did not showcase more night blooming plants.
The book showcases twenty-one different gardens. Each section has historical and geographical information pertaining to each garden.
This is a lovely coffee table book.

This is an outstanding book for everyone interested in gardens. These 20 American and Canadian gardens are now on my list of places to visit. Amazing flowers, amazing lighting and photography.
