Description
Daffodils nodding along the Long Island Sound, feathery reeds rising from a pool in Spain, camel lias abloom on a cliff in France: seaside gardens are as varied and as captivating as the coastal Landscape itself. Gardens by the Sea explores 20 exceptional seaside gardens in Italy, Spain, France, England, and the East and West Coasts of the United States. Engaging tours of each garden reveal how they were created and bring to life their special qualities, from the mixture of austerity and exoticism of Spain's water gardens to the aura of antiquity that pervades Corsican gardens, to the tamed wildness found on Cornwall's coastline. With 250 striking photographs, Gardens by the Sea is an elegant book, an irresistible invitation to experience paradise shaped, in concert, by nature and the human imagination. 'Gardens by the Sea' explores 20 exceptional seaside gardens in Italy, Spain, France, England, and the east and west coasts of the United States. Engaging tours of each garden reveal how they were created and bring to life their special qualities. With 250 striking photos.
