Gardens can be formal or wild, serene or ostentatious, native or exotic, colourful or monochrome -according to Trisha Dixon, if we like a person, we will probably like their garden

In a series of written reflections, interwoven with her evocative, painterly photographs, Trisha explores the relationship that exists between ourselves, our gardens and the natural landscape. Beyond the design and the plants, there is the feel of the garden, which captures the heart from the moment you enter a landscape and stays with you long after you have left.

In a chapter on Gardens of the Mind , Trisha explores how artists, thinkers and writers have acknowledged and found value in the spirit of gardens and landscapes.
