CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Connecticut is uniquely rich in beautiful landscape, encompassing more than
six hundred miles of serene shoreline along Long Island Sound, untold acres of
open farmland, and the rolling hills and lakes of the famed northwest corner on
the New York/Massachusetts border. The varied topography and microclimates have
given rise to an unusual range of gardens.
Twenty-eight are presented here, a rare and privileged glimpse of the private
retreats of prominent members of the fashion, design, arts, and business
communities. Some are grand in scale, others exceedingly modest, but all have
been cared for and tended with great love. None of these gardens was made
overnight and many have taken years to come to fruition. The garden of the
Greek god Adonis may have “one day blossomed and fruitful were the next,” but
not any of the gardens featured in this book.
In an engaging and highly anecdotal text, Jane Garmey tells the story of the
creation of the gardens and the pleasure the owners take in them while John
Hall’s magnificent photographs of sumptuous flowers and luxuriant foliage bring
them to life
