It has been more than a decade since Carolyne Roehm first shared
her love of gardening and flower arranging. Now, for the first time
ever, she turns her own photographic lens to that passion with
Flowers, showcasing more than 300 images of the varieties in her
abundant gardens, all captured at their most vibrant and exquisite
moments throughout the season.
With a gardener’s intimate
understanding and a designer’s elegant eye, Roehm shows us the
flowers she has cultivated for decades in and around Weatherstone, her
historic Connecticut home. While alternating dramatic close-ups with
portraits of lovely arrangements and sweeping views of her land, Roehm
writes with wit, emotion, and affection of what flowers have meant to
her, as well as of the joys and travails of the committed
gardener’s life.
What began as a casual hobby ultimately
became a multi-year endeavor, as Roehm used her camera to explore the
special relationship a gardener enjoys with her carefully nurtured
beauties. The outcome is a remarkably personal visual essay: sumptuous,
surprising, and as revealing of the sensibility behind the camera as the
magnificent species that stand before it.
This beautiful objet
d’art—a flower garden in a book—is Carolyne
Roehm’s most significant and singular volume yet.

Absolutely stunning and exactly what I expected based on the two other books I own by Carolyne Roehm. I've wanted this one for a long time but kept putting off purchasing because of the price. The page & photo quality are absolutely worth it tho. It's another oversize book and it covers 9 categories of flowers: Daffodils, Tulips, Lilacs, Lily of the Valley, Peonies, Iris, Roses, Clematis and Dahlias. Since these are among my very favorite to grow as well, I am completely happy with her Absolutely stunning and exactly what I expected based on the two other books I own by Carolyne Roehm.

The photos in the book are spectacular and equally spectacular are the array of vases and containers used to showcase the blooms. Many of the photos include table settings with the floral arrangements so it's a double bonus for those of us who also appreciate a beautifully set table.

The reading is minimal, this is definitely a coffee table book, but it very successfully captures the essence of each floral category featured. When the snow is swirling, opening this and leafing thru the pages will give any gardener joy. The only critique I have is the typo of my very favorite rose, Abraham Darby. In the book it's spelled twice as Abraham Derby. It probably would only bother another David Austin rose fanatic. ...more

Stunning floral arranging and gardens with great photography which is perfectly set off by the large scale format of the book. I recommend to anyone who likes floral arranging and flowers as art as opposed to readers more interested in straightforward gardening works.
