The Gardens of Wales
After his 12thC perambulation of Wales Giraldus Cambrensis was so bold as to note that "There are no gardens in Wales". Maybe not then but 800 years later there most certainly are. Helena Attlee has captured, in her book, the true flavour of Wales from the splendour of Powis castle to the humble peace of Llowes Court. From the formality of Dyffryn Gardens to the bold and thrilling National Botanic Gardens in Carmarthenshire.
Photographs of fine quality abound thanks to the skill of Alex Ramsay.
Helena's other books concentrate on gardens in Italy and Portugal so it's a treat for us Welsh garden lovers that she has given us such a book.
