Visions of Roses

by Peter Beales, Vivian Russell

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Here is a delicious feast for the armchair gardener or for the traveler planning a garden tour. Thirty rose gardens in Europe and North America have been photographed gloriously by award-winning garden photographer Russell and described lovingly by Beales, the custodian of the National Collection of Rose Species. Each garden reflects its place and the personality of its creator, and Beales is a master at succinctly setting the scene. He then provides a verbal tour enhanced by closeups and full-page vistas of the roses. We see what the Queen Mother has done over a lifetime at Royal Lodge and what Lee Radziwill has accomplished by the ocean in just six years. Some of these gardens are open to the public; others can be seen only in a book such as this. Enhancements include a chart of rose colors and types and detailed descriptions of two roses from each garden. Recommended for larger garden collections.-Carol Cubberley, Univ. of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg
