On May 8, 2014, Manalapan health Examiner Stacey Chillemi reviewed Author Judy Condon's new book "Through the Garden Gate." This book consists of over 600 color photographs of 26 gardens filled with inspirational ideas for water features, landscapes, garden accessories and plantings.
This book is a unique and invigorating read packed with astonishing photography based on beautiful gardens whose gardeners used a gate or a trellis as a means through which to enter as a focal point to design and create a garden that will blow you away. The photography captivates your eyes as you get to witness the many different creative souls that used their gardens as a way to bring light to their artistry and creative expertise.
Each chapter takes you to a different home and shows you how each family created their own unique look by using different gates old and new, iron and wood, rusted and painted, plain and decorated. Each chapter gives you a run-down of its family history along with how each family created their own distinct look using colorful flowers and accessories.
The book then continues into chapter two through chapter 26 where Judy Condon takes you to different homes to view their exquisite gardening designs.
