Colophon: "Welcome to our Gardens of Delight. The noted English writer Vita Sackville-West said that gardeners are always optimistic, always enterprising, and never satisfied. They always look forward to doing something better than they have ever done before. "It was in this spirit that we began our garden book, the eighth collaboration from False Bay Editions at Bay Park Press. Perhaps the creative seed for this book sprouted from Sibyl's longtime interest in all things botanical. Or maybe its roots are from Jim's ancestors who dug in the midwest earth for a living. But as gardeners do, we have nurtured this book into a riotous colorscape for your senses. And we hope it is better than we have ever done before." Twelve fantasy gardens: The Primordial Garden; The Secret Garden; The Desert Garden; The Rose Garden; The Orchid Garden; Garden of The Mystics; The Water Garden; The Night Garden; The Herb Garden; The Garden of Eros; The Butterfly Garden; The Japanese Garden.
