Japanese courtyard gardens
There is nothing to equal the intimate beauty of a Japanese courtyard garden and this magnificent collection of photographs by Haruzo Ohashi presents the very best of them. Large space or small, dominated by shade or sun, courtyard gardens offer a special place for rest and reflection. In these exquisite full-color photographs Ohashi features the familiar elements of a courtyard garden including rocks, gravel, trees, shrubs, water basins, and moss -- but their combination and effect is always new and spiritually refreshing.
This splendid use of confined space has a special attraction for urban gardeners who are increasingly adapting the "less is more" philosophy captured in Japanese Courtyard Gardens.
