Picturesque tumbledown cottages, their gardens ablaze with roses, delphiniums, and hollyhocks, inspired a whole generation of Victorian artists. 130 inspired works by painters such as Helen Allingham, Claude Strachan, and David Woodlock, along with forty others, compose a fascinating and splendid historical record of the flowers and features that characterized the Victorian English country garden. "...a cornucopia of entrancing watercolors."--The Field. "As happy a book as you are likely to meet."--Arts Review.
