Love Poems and Flower Photographs: GARDEN OF LOVE by Anne Darling & John Hudson

The love poems and flower photographs in Garden of Love offer a rich and varied excursion into the age-old association between the worlds of passion and flowers, and lead us through love's awakening, its intensity and its passing.

by John Hudson & Anne Darling

Originally created by Anne Darling and John Hudson during many hours spent in the gardens of north-west France, Garden of Love is the legacy of a moment, an enduring record that lovers everywhere will recognize and cherish.
