Beauty and romance just seem to go together naturally, and nowhere is this delightful combination more rewarding or accessible than in the garden. Smith, a professional photographer, uses her unerring eye for color, composition, and detail to create a seemingly endless variety of enticing garden vignettes in this awe-inspiring guide to creating a romantic garden environment that is a feast for the eyes as well as a balm for the soul. With her marriage to the owner of the historic Lent Riker Smith Homestead, New York City's oldest private dwelling, the author embarked on a fairy-tale journey to develop a fantasy garden, one that could be both privately romantic and publicly inviting. From whimsical birdhouses and elegant benches to classic statuary and fanciful containers, Smith provides appealing and inspiring examples of the artistry in combining natural and man-made materials. A fertile imagination, Smith contends, may be even more important than a fertile soil when creating one's own tranquil and alluring garden interlude. Carol Haggas
