"Cradled within the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area west of Sydney, the cool-climate gardens and 'hill stations' of Mount Wilson, Mount Tomah and Mount Irvine reveal their enduring beauty and delights, both subtle and bold. Showcased through Brown's beautiful photographs, the gardens range from those mellowed by over a century of growing time through the golden years between the wars, to those tackling the challenges of modern day gardening. Dense cool climate plantings, splashes of autumn flamboyance, spring blossoms, and occasional touches of grandeur are intrinsic to these exotic oases within the all-pervasive native wilderness. Many of these unique mountain gardens are documented here for the first time. The reader is invited to unlatch the garden gate and step within these enchanted settings."
