Synopsis

Featuring plants that grew in the UK and Europe's most famous medieval gardens, and which are still cultivated today the most beautiful, best and most naturally coloured species with the purest fragrance. This is a truly inventive, well-researched book, highlighting the beauty of flowers cultivated and wild, as well as gardens and bowers. Clay Perry's photographs include a lush series of studio flower portraits as well as shots of existing medieval gardens, chamomile lawns and fruit trees in blossom. From Peony to Poppy, Solomon's Seal and Columbine to Lily and Iris, the photographs emphasise the contemplative atmosphere of the gardens, all of which can be recreated today.
