How to Read Gardens: A Crash Course in Garden Visiting by Lorraine Harrison



I have a huge appreciation for gardens. I love gardening myself. I also love viewing other peoples gardens. Did you know that gardens are not just a bunch of plants tossed into an empty spot on the ground? They are a work of art as well. My husband and I visit a lot of museums and gardens. Some of the gardens at museums actually speak to you about the people who lived in the home. You can learn a lot of the person who planted the garden, their favorite colors, their favorite flower and more.

This book is a guide to help you understand more of what you are seeing when you visit Gardens. There are a huge variety of types of gardens. There are Flowers, there are trees, there are shrubs, and even some gardens are all about the pots and statues. This book helps you learn what you are looking at and how to appreciate the beauty even more. Most gardens that have withstood the twists and turns of time are not actually the original garden at all. They may have been remade over time and some may of even been restored back to what the planter assumes was the original garden. Knowing what to look for in a garden is also important in being able to appreciate it even more.

This book is an awesome guide. The text sections are short but give you enough to go on by adding the beautiful pictures in the book. There are also some black and white drawings as well. You may even see some ideas in this book for starting your own garden.

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