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.

Bravo!!!!! A Treasure - exquisitely done - but I am not surprised - her work is nothing short of amazing. Two thoughts come to mind when I read Carolyne Roehm's books - she is a totally under-appreciated artistic talent and I am so glad I have her work to inspire me!

Have all of Carolyne Roehm's books - all of them incredibly beautiful and knowledgable - whether it's her garden, her parties,etc., etc. she knows how to do a beautiful, interesting and knowledgable book - the photographs are incredible and the size of the book (large) gives one a sense of being there in her garden, admiring the beauties of nature. Bravo, Ms. Roehm! for another masterpiece!

This is delightful book that should have universal appeal.There is very little text and it is not of much consequence, for this is a book about pictures. And what pictures they are! Each of the nine chapters is devoted to a single flower, wonderfully photographed either in magnificent gardens or in stunning table settings.No matter if you are an avid gardener, an aspiring designer or simply someone who loves beautiful flowers, you will find this book an enchanting indulgence to which you will return often.

I have now made it a mission of mine to collect all of the Carolyn Roehm books. This giant volume was my first, a Christmas present to myself and I was beyond delighted when I received it. The quality of paper stock,the glorious photographs and descriptive text make every page a joy to behold. This is not simply a book, this is an experience. If you need a Mothers Day gift and you know a lady who loves flowers and the garden this is a great choice. I wish all these types of books were of this superb quality, but then I guess that's what makes this volume and the lady who created it so special. I highly recommend it.

If you are a flower lover, artist, or just appreciate the lovliness of nature, this is the book for you. The pictures are wonderful.Carolyne Roehm has done it again with her classic style. I highly recommend this book. It would make a fine gift, too. Prompt shipping and good packing insure one of a great experience with the shipper.

Just a beautiful book to relax with. If you have a large garden and gardener, this book will give suggestions for planting design. Ideas for the small garden are there too. Ideally this is a wonderful book to cherish for all it's beauty.

Have all her books and love to give to friends who garden and arrange flowers. She does everything from flowers to houses with the utmost of ease, aplomb and fortunately shares with everyone in her beautiful books. FLOWERS is a great beauty!

Beautiful coffee table book. The chapters are broken down by flower. The oversized book is a great addition to my coffee table, and it's fun to thumb through and look at all the beautiful photographs.
