This is the story of a garden, Bellevue House, in Newport, Rhode Island, that encompasses history and memory, inspiration and motivation. Author Ronald Lee Fleming has written an entirely new kind of garden book; an empowerment guide for the gardener who wants to invest their own sense of place and family history into the garden structure. Rather than a homage to contemporary gardens, a survey of historic gardens, or a \"how-to\" manual, Fleming makes a larger argument for classicism as a living language in contemporary times. Through a careful mix of rich visual imagery and memoir, the author brings to life the garden he has created and explains his many sources, including deeply-held personal memories.

AUTHOR:
Ronald Lee Fleming is an author and the founder and president of The Townscape Institute, a non-profit public interest planning organisation based in Cambridge, MA.

SELLING POINTS:
• A deeply personal memoir narrated through the lens of a narrative garden.
• Shows how landscape can resonate with our past experiences and evoke memories of other garden places familiar to the seasoned garden visitor.
