Gardens of Corfu
Beautiful coffee table book, large format, with stunning photographs of private gardens which range from romantic old estates and highly personal ‘grandmothers’ gardens’ to stunning contemporary works by international designers. The ‘Garden Island’ has more rainfall than anywhere else in the Aegean. The newer gardens are designed for sustainability, conserving water and drawing inspiration from the surrounding natural landscape. Tracing the roots of their inspiration, the book’s last chapter explores the island’s varied wild landscape and the procession of wildflowers through the seasons. Outstanding.
