Description

Product Description

It has been more than a decade since Carolyne Roehm first shared her love of gardening and flower arranging. Now, for the first time ever, she turns her own photographic lens to that passion with Flowers, showcasing more than 300 images of the varieties in her abundant gardens, all captured at their most vibrant and exquisite moments throughout the season.

With a gardener’s intimate understanding and a designer’s elegant eye, Roehm shows us the flowers she has cultivated for decades in and around Weatherstone, her historic Connecticut home. While alternating dramatic close-ups with portraits of lovely arrangements and sweeping views of her land, Roehm writes with wit, emotion, and affection of what flowers have meant to her, as well as of the joys and travails of the committed gardener’s life.

What began as a casual hobby ultimately became a multi-year endeavor, as Roehm used her camera to explore the special relationship a gardener enjoys with her carefully nurtured beauties. The outcome is a remarkably personal visual essay: sumptuous, surprising, and as revealing of the sensibility behind the camera as the magnificent species that stand before it.

This beautiful objet d’art—a flower garden in a book—is Carolyne Roehm’s most significant and singular volume yet.

Review

"Gardening is [Carolyne Roehm''s] passion, and her photographs of its blowsy stars are reverent works of art. This book is nothing less than an ode to fragile, fleeting beauty, and it is utterly captivating." - Veranda

"When Flowers by Carolyne Roehm landed on my desk, I was astonished by the beautiful bloom on the cover. Against a pure white background, you can really take in all of the intricacies and subtleties of the flower, right down to the little ''hairs'' on the leaves . . . With each turn of the book''s massive pages, you''re immersed in the the gardens Roehm photographed. I can almost smell them! . . . You won''t want to miss this stunner." -Kevin Sharkey, MarthaStewart.com

"Fashion designer Carolyne Roehm’s Flowers is the epic Lawrence of Arabia of flower tomes, featuring 300 images of posies from Roehm’s abundant personal gardens in Connecticut . . . Roehm''s book offers countless ideas for flower arrangement BFFs like creamy clematis and ivory roses or the inspired touch of adding strawberries to an arrangement of plump pink, peach, red and white roses. Her book is filled with the kind of visual inspiration that makes you want to dash to your own garden or supermarket and create a bouquet of your own." -HGTVGardens.com

"For this book, Roehm took on an additional task, acting not just as the stylist, but as the photographer too, taking many of the striking shots herself. As a result, Flowers is her most deeply personal--not to mention lush--book yet." -1st Dibs

"From the grande dame of elegant entertaining, Carolyne Roehm''s 11th book focuses on what is often considered the ultimate finishing touch for any well-appointed table or party--flowers. Along with personally photographing a large portion of the book, Roehm masterfully relays her knowledge of the infinite details of stylish living." - Traditional Home

"[Flowers is] a big book, physically larger than most coffee table books. And it''s heavy and beautifully bound . . . [Carolyne Roehm''s] images say it all . . . You won’t be able to put [ Flowers] down, once you open it." - New York Social Diary

"A photographic musing on lush gardens and their fleeting beauty." - New York Cottages and Gardens

"Readers are in for a real hortucultural treat . . . The over sized (gigantic in a fabulous way) book is packed with lush imagery." -StyleBeat blog

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

There are two types of peonies: the herbaceous variety, consisting of individual flowers, and the deciduous shrub. Or, as I like to refer to them, the blondes and the brunettes. 
   The blonde herbaceous ones are, like their two-legged sisters, easy to love—they’re big, blowsy, and abundant, and you just want to pull them to you, bury your nose in their crazy, flyaway petals, and inhale that sweet perfume. If this sounds like damning with faint praise, I swear on every brown hair on my head that it isn’t. Blonde peonies put me in mind of Marilyn Monroe (all right, she wasn’t a real blonde, but she had the soul of one): the flowers exude a fantastic life force—they simply explode before your eyes, and everything they are remains on display at all times. Whether you see a great swath of them in the garden or come upon their adorable heads bobbling in a vase, you understand the Marilyn peonies the moment you look at them, and your heart foods with gratitude and pleasure. 
   Even so, I’d give a slight edge to the brunette—if the herbaceous variety belongs to Marilyn, the deciduous is Greta Garbo. The beauty of the “tree” peony, as it’s called, is less obvious, more unconventional. You have to unpack layers of mystery to fully appreciate its character; it is fascinating rather than effusive. As with poppies, the petals of a peony can be as delicate and translucent as crepe; the flower’s deep scarlets and magentas manage to be at once boldly saturated and subtly nuanced.    
   Though it can break your heart to cut them, a single bloom in a vase will reward long contemplation. I adore my roses the most. But no flower more clearly expresses for me the presence of the spiritual in the realm of nature than this one.

I bought this based on the photos for the look inside the book feature expecting all the photos to look that way, there were 12 photos that were full page. I wanted to use them as reference photos for watercolor painting, most of the images are of cut flowers in small vases arranged inside interiors for decorating and were largely disappointing. I would consider this more of an interior design book, and I didn''t purchase it for that reason. I decided to keep it for the 12 photos that were amazing, the size is very large for doing water color botanical studies and the flowers were very beautiful but probably would not have purchased this if I had seen the full book in the store.

Amazing book with spectacular photos! It is of substantial size and weight. I ordered it twice and received it with a torn book jacket both times. Not exactly the pristine condition I would prefer for a coffee table book but far too lovely to return.

I have now made it a mission of mine to collect all of the Carolyn Roehm books. This giant volume was my first, a Christmas present to myself and I was beyond delighted when I received it. The quality of paper stock,the glorious photographs and descriptive text make every page a joy to behold. This is not simply a book, this is an experience. If you need a Mothers Day gift and you know a lady who loves flowers and the garden this is a great choice. I wish all these types of books were of this superb quality, but then I guess that''s what makes this volume and the lady who created it so special. I highly recommend it.

This is delightful book that should have universal appeal.

There is very little text and it is not of much consequence, for this is a book about pictures. And what pictures they are! Each of the nine chapters is devoted to a single flower, wonderfully photographed either in magnificent gardens or in stunning table settings.

No matter if you are an avid gardener, an aspiring designer or simply someone who loves beautiful flowers, you will find this book an enchanting indulgence to which you will return often.

What, I ask myself, is holding me back as a gardener? Well, a few very important impediments. First, I have a family that includes two teenagers and anyone who has ever raised one or two of these interesting creatures will know how complicated and very time-intensive that can be. Second, money is so annoyingly finite, and I am required by forces regrettably beyond my control to limit my acquisition of plant material largely to what I can get my hands on by division of my existing plants, or else am able to grow from seed. The mother of She Who Must Be Obeyed, She Who Was Obeyed First, sends me some money for my birthday every March, and this is all poured into interesting plants in one short burst of zeal and covetousness, but then that is that for the year. Third, I have a tricky day job for "the world''s biggest media company" and have to say how shockingly a full-time job can interfere with one''s gardening plans.

None of these difficulties afflicts Carolyne Roehm, in addition to which she has abundant energy, tremendous taste in and skill with plants and derives endless enjoyment from them. All of which are fully on display in this excellent, I may say gorgeous, book. My wife gave me this enormous coffee table book for Christmas, and what a spectacular thing it is. Roehm brings her designer''s eye and vast passion for flowers together, adding to them her considerable skill as a photographer, to create a sumptuous feast of color and texture. For those of us who live where winter largely blots out garden color, this is a wonderful tonic and escape. You turn page after page, and you are drawn into the beautiful fantasy of individual flowers, fantastic bouquets and then breath-taking shots of Roehm''s beautiful property in Connecticut. It is expensive, but worth it if you have a mind to splurge a bit. It''s cheaper than a trip to Hawaii, after all.
