A new elegant garden book out for travelers searching for gardens was published in October, 2012. Flowers in the World’s Most Beautiful Gardens was written by Yves-Marie Allain and photographed by Alain Le Toquin.
The beautiful coffee table book focuses only on flowers and the public gardens they grow in. The author and photographer heavily focused on images of Great Britain and France but also includes highlights from Germany, Belgium, Russia and Thailand, to name a few.
The glossy images draws readers in and overwhelms the writing. Though, the chapters do give readers with an appreciation for growing plants inspiration to travel to these locations and see them in person.
Published by Abrams Books, there are 240 pages. Flowers in the World’s Most Beautiful Gardens is a garden book that can be found with ISBN 978-1-4197-0558-8.
Plant lovers travel to gardens created in foreign countries simply to enjoy and appreciate what others have grown. A bit of inspiration to stay gardening is an added benefit.
