Eclare ushers readers into spectacular Irish garden settings, and, as garden lovers might expect, a visit to Helen Dillon's celebrated Dublin garden is a must. Eclare tells an amusing story about her first visit to the horticultural doyenne's domicile, during which she nearly trampled the plants with a ladder used for photographing. Personal asides such as this imbue the warmly written vignettes of gardeners and their beloved gardens with a beguilingly intimate tone. Equally captivating are the book's gorgeous photographs of plants, beautiful stonework, outstanding statuary, and the voluptuous floral compositions that adorn Ireland's great castle estates, rural herb growers, country guest houses, and quaint cottages.

From the Publisher
"Glorious Gardens of Ireland" is not only a celebration of the extraordinary diversity and beauty of Irish gardens, but also a paean to those who create and tend them. In more than 200 ravishing color photographs, Melanie Eclare shows us the best of them--from the sumptuous potagers of the Ballymaloe Cookery School to the secret gardens that lie hidden in the Georgian back streets of Dublin. Her reputation for stunning photography, as well as her extensive knowledge of plants and design, encouraged the gardeners to reveal their own stories, recorded here with lively candor. Eclare's privileged access leads us right to the heart of these gardens, making "Glorious Gardens of Ireland" one of the most vibrant and intimate books ever published on the subject.
