Horse Island by Christina Kennedy



To me Horses are at the top of the list of God's most beautiful creatures. This book actually has nothing to do with horses though. Horse Island is in fact a secluded and private piece of land on the Tuross Lake Estuary on the southern coast of New South Wales Australia. The book takes you through Christina Kennedy's Gardens on the island. The book is about 100 pages of stunning photos of beautiful gardens. There are close ups of some plants and the then long shots of the particular garden area.

Christina Kennedy's family has owned Horse Island for several generations. It is now hers.  She also inherited her love and respect for gardening from her family. She has used only native plants in her gardens which give them so much more then just being beautiful. She has planted everything in a classical style and it is just stunning.

The photos in this book are a work of art. From the pictures of simple stone benches to fog in the mountains this book is a real treat for the eye and the mind. There is also a history of the building of the buildings and gardens on the island.

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
