Description
County of a hundred moats, Worcestershire has medieval water gardens so impossibly romantic that they look like opera sets, and two of 18th-century Britain's most influential landscape parks. But what distinguishes what Timothy Mowl calls this "yeoman county" is a tradition of brilliant eccentrics, beginning with The Leasowes, an enchanted hollow designed by William Shenstone, whom Mowl calls a "bad poet, great gardener," and continuing today with such whimsical locations as Birtsmorton with its iron angel gate and a pageboy statue offering a rose to visitors in the courtyard. As with the other books in the series (written to call attention to the individual garden characters of each of England's counties), scads of illustrations, including maps and photographs—16 pages in color—underscore Mowl's engaging text.
