Description - The Southern Garden by Lydia Longshore
Southerners have always gardened with great style. The temperate climate allows the garden to serve as an extension of a home's interior. With patios, terraces & pools, their homes often spill into outdoor living space. The long growing season allows plenty of opportunities for carving these areas & the surrounding landscape into beautiful gardens. From vast estate gardens to simple potagers, the garden holds a place of supremacy in the Southern imagination. THE SOUTHERN GARDEN illustrates a range of Southern gardens, grand & simple, with breathtaking photographs by some of America's best photographers. The American South extends over five garden zones & allows for a wide range of garden styles & plantings, from the rolling hills of Virginia to the tropicality of New Orleans or the plains of Texas. The monthly gardening feature of Southern Accents has long been a popular staple of the magazine & readers will welcome this gorgeous overview by gardening editor Lydia Longshore.
