Provence and the Cote d'Azur are a landscape gardener's idyll, and this volume's extraordinary: creations, building on light and a dry climate, create the impression that indeed this area is one magnificent garden, whether employing the region's evergreens, its widespread shrubbery, lavender meadows and lentiful herbs and spices, or its "desert" vegetation - cactus and the like. From the humid tropical to the unspoilt hills, from the coast to the valleys, only here can you say that you walk in gardens as varied as dreams, yet as sensual as life. Deidi von Schaewen's superb
photographs transport us to 22 extraordinary gardens, both private and public, in France's loveliest region.
