An enchanting celebration of gardens throughout the world, Invitation to the Garden offers a breathtaking display of garden images - by some of today's best garden photographers - and pairs them with an eloquent and evocative selection of literary works. The timeless and exquisite beauty of these words and images perfectly captures the thoughts, feelings and moods that gardens and gardening arouse.
Delicate spring daffodils are matched with a poem by Emily Dickinson, while Celia Thaxter's charming prose is illustrated with bright Iceland poppies and her own garden in the Isles of Shoals. An arbor massed with vibrant climbing roses balances W H. Auden's "Song of the Rose" and, from the other side of the world, a serene bonsai and sand garden in Kyoto complements "The Sand Garden" from Mr. Palomars Journey by Italo Calvino. Essays and diary excerpts from such classic garden writers as Richardson Wright, Alice Morse Earle, and Henry N. Ellacombe are included in this collection, as well as classics we may well remember from our childhoods - "Daffodowndilly" by A. A. Milne, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, and Alice's conversation with the flowers in Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll.
Visually striking and luxuriously produced, Invitation to the Garden is sure to increase the sense of wonder we all feel at the sight of a beautiful garden.
