The Garden at Night

The Garden at Night: Private Views of Public Edens

Photographs by Linda Rutenberg
Chronicle Books, 2007
Featured book from our Oversized section

As a resident of Montréal, Linda Rutenberg does not qualify as a Pacific Northwest author, but the collection of her photographs in the 2007 publication The Garden at Night: Private Views of Public Eden includes Pacific Northwest subjects. The Washington Park Arboretum and the Butchart Gardens are both featured, as are several other west coast gardens. The Italian Garden at Butchart is particularly enchanting at night, and one simply must experience Azalea Way -- after dark!

This review by Brian Thompson, Curator of Horticultural Literature, originally appeared in the Fall 2009 Arboretum Bulletin.
