A Hefty and Winning Garden Retrospective

While perusing through Borders Books for a gift for a colleague I stumbled
upon Mick Hales, Gardens Around the World: 365 Days a wonderfully
photographed and comprehensive volume of gardens from, as the title says, around
the world. The book has distinctive photographs of gardens, which, as the
introduction points out, capture each garden’s essence well. As anyone who has
photographed gardens will know, this is not an easy task, especially in small
spaces. This book would be especially useful for those looking for inspirational
images to use for establishing a style of garden design, or as inspiration for
travel plans.

Plus, at the size of an oversized brick, this compact yet dense volume can
serve well if the reader is accosted by a dinner guest who has had a bit too
much wine.
