Stock up on this glorious new book, “ Connecticut Gardens, A Celebration of the State’s Historic, Public, and Private Gardens,” by photographer Caryn B. Davis and Chris Lawrie, and have the perfect host/ess gift all summer. This stunner covers everything from formal landscapes to cottage gardens across Connecticut (and most you can visit).
The breathtaking photography and insightful text provide history and inspiration behind the outdoor spaces. You’ll be motivated to get your hands dirty (or spend a leisurely Sunday morning leafing through as I did). Mesmerizing. Find it here: https://www.rjjulia.com/book/9781493067602
Also available at Artemesia in Old Lyme (their restored Olmsted garden is featured).
