"If you have a garden and a library, then you have everything you need," said Cicero in ancient times. Gardens are places of peace and meditation that invite you to dream. With their vivid greens, flowers in every color of the rainbow, and inviting shade trees, gardens exert a special pull on us and offer an escape from everyday stress. Paradise Found - Gardens of Enchantment shows the world's most beautiful gardens, from English gardens and romantic rose gardens to enchanting nature gardens. The evocative photographs and excellent plant portraits by Clive Nichols, a master of using light to create mood, are equally moving and inspiring. Classic garden poems and quotes accompany the reader through this volume on a visual stroll through nature.
