A disappointemnt. Jun 26, 2008
As a dedicated gardener, I really looked forward to this book for inspiration and enjoyment. Somehow the publishers got the colours wrong and the whole book is a nauseating green colour in all the gardens. There should have been better quality control. However because the price is right, it still has value for learning about the different kinds of gardens in France.
