A rare glimpse of twelve intimate retreats hidden from the everyday.
Open yourself up to the allure of a lush world tucked away from view, and the pleasure of taking a peek. Every month, find a place of respite in twelve sanctuaries that engulf all who enter in serenity and rejuvenation. Open the gate and you'll see a trickling stream flanked by colorful wildflowers. Follow the sunshine and see layers of greenery and ivy. A bench beckons from beneath robustly blossoming branches, inviting you to sit back and daydream for a moment longer. Accompanying the photographs are sidebars with gardening tips, quotes and appreciations. To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment. --Jane Austen
