Home Library: Gardens of New Orleans: Exquisite Excess

It's hot, humid, lush, and overwhelmingly green in New Orleans, so it makes sense that a number of books have been written on this city's gardens. One of the best of these, by authors Lake Douglas and Jeannette Hardy, Gardens of New Orleans ($40, hardcover) chronicles the excessive flora of this delta city.


The book features exquisitely lush photos by Richard Sexton and historical maps, photos, and drawings of the city, providing an embarrassment of riches with which to explore this city's gardens. With chapters on private and public gardens, parks, and landmark spaces and species, you'll be charmed with this book, whether you've visited New Orleans yet or are just plotting your first trip.
