"The perfect dream journal for winter has finally arrived. Orr gives garden owners their say and nurtures dreams, scattering how-tos and lists of plants among his more than 200 photographs.
--By Jan Gardner, February 27, 2011 Boston Globe
What makes it armchair-worthy: We might be drawn in by the images, but as we pore over the text, consider its lessons, we begin to reshape our own vision of how to plant our own gardens for tomorrow. --Barbara Mahany, Tribune Newspapers
[Orr] devoted a year away from his home bases to find gardens that not only reached a level of sustainability in plant choices, water usage and preservation of other resources, but that also looked delightful. --Debra Prinzing, Los Angeles Times
"But, wisely, [Orr] resists a didactic tone, concentrating instead on describing small plots whose modest beauties speak volumes. There are intriguing designs here for any gardener." --Dominique Browning, The New York Times
Given the forward-looking issues it addresses, the differing climates and conditions of the gardens featured, plus its sheer joie de vivre, this is a book of international stature... --Rob Cassy--Garden Illustrated

and personal and encouraging the voice is-- what a FRIEND
experience Stephen Orr creates with his reader. I immediately felt
welcomed into the world of this book, which has the double
seduction of being beautiful but at the same time not intimidating
in the way the gardens that magazines cover sometimes are. Orr's message
throughout is that this sort of beauty and wonder and wealth is there for
all of us if we want it, to the huge betterment of our lives. And his lessons
about how to make it happen are clear and easy to follow, while also emphasizing
the role each of our personal visions plays in the gardens we create.
The photos are gorgeous and again, so intensely personal. They
add another layer to the sense of entering into these places,
freely shared by people who seem to want us to be there with them.
I am so moved by my experience with this book. It's DIFFERENT. It's kind
and encouraging and intimate while completely respecting its readers as fellow travelers.
I found myself at times holding my breath as I read it.
