The good thing is that at a bargain price you get hours of garden exploring in your armchair. And for a European it's interesting to see some great formal American gardens that actually put there European predecessors almost in the shade. That would have been a good book, the American contribution alone.
Hales speaks to each photograph, each garden view, enhancing what we otherwise might miss from the one vantage given us. He has arranged the 365 gardens both alphabetically as to place and further defined the photographs by months of the year. Here are gardens from winter to fall: the flow is as magical as the qualities of nature.
In his short but sensitive introduction to his portfolio he states: "As our society moves faster and faster, with technological advances each year, it is hard for us to keep our connection to the land. Keeping a garden is on answer to this loss - having one's hands in and smelling the soil. Watching plants grow, flower, and die back reminds us of our own humanity and the lives we have been given." And that sums it all! This is a MUST for gardeners, for naturalists, for dreamers. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, July 05
Ask me about the space heater I bought recently. That is quite a different story.
