Beautiful Gardens of Kentucky

by Jon Carloftis

This splendid photographic celebration of the beauty of the gardens of Kentucky, is brought to us by a garden designer of great national acclaim. In this lavishly illustrated volume presenting in all their magnificence and magic, gardens from all time periods in the state of Kentucky, Jon Carloftis puts to use his Kentucky heritage to narrate as no foreigner ever could, the poetical story of each of these charming gardens, as well as that of their makers. Belonging to a long state tradition, these gardens are each masterpieces in their own right, featuring along with the talent of their makers, the incredible beauty and piece of nature. The abundant vegetation of Kentucky conceals in the secret and shade of luxuriant trees, the most beautiful floral arrangements and even constructions which bring to mind the past times of the Old South. And this amazing volume is not only a history, it is also a treasure trove of advice for gardeners of today, and of lesser ambitions, to make their outdoors look a little more heavenly. 322 pages. 11.25 x 10.5 inches.

Lavishly illustrated with full-color photographs. Includes an introductory poem, as well as a text telling the story of each garden and their makers.
