These 10 Photographs of Gorgeous Gardens Around the World Will Give You a Serious Case of Spring Fever
Photography has a long history with botanicals as a way of documenting nature, but photographers haven't stopped there. The photographs in the book range from portraits of well manicured lawns and slightly askew flower beds to alternatively processed photographic prints of leaves, and from floral arrangements to landscapes of some of the world’s most famous gardens.
Even if spring isn't yet in bloom where you are, this selection of photographs from the book will inspire you to visit the world's most renowned gardens — or at the very least your local flora-filled landscapes.
