PREFACE by Henry James. Chapter One. Chapter Two. Chapter Three. Book Third. Book Fourth. In Book Two, Chapter 1, James allows Strether to set out his story, his role and function as an ambassador representing the interests of Woollett. Strether has a dialogue with Maria Gostrey, whose role in the book is almost the same as Ralph Touchett’s in The Portrait of a Lady or Fanny Assingham’s in The Golden Bowl.

James Ensor was born in the seaside town of Ostend, Belgium, in 1860 to a British father and a Belgium mother. His mother ran a curio shop that sold touristy tat, including masks to wear during the town’s annual festival. Ensor loved his father, who supported his son’s choice of career. But his art was inspired more by his mother’s shop where he spent many hours as a child surrounded by its opulent colours, reflections and sparkling rays of light, doubtlessly contributed to me becoming a painter in love with colour, delighted in the blinding glow of light.

Gardening is one of the great pastimes of those who live on the seashore, where a garden can be anything from an artful arrangement of flowerpots on a wooden deck to a landscaped estate with a private beach. The ocean breezes, bright sunlight, salt air, sand, and dramatic storms that make the seashore evocative and invigorating are a gift to the gardener, but also present a challenge.Seaside Gardening shows how experienced gardeners have created beautiful gardens in a range of shoreline environments, including small fenced-in lots in crowded summer communities, sandy ocean dunes, rocky shore lines, and the wetlands on bays and estuaries. A well-illustrated section devoted to design shows gardens that frame views; colorful borders that combine perennials, annuals, and grasses; patio and deck gardens; ponds and pools; and diverse treatments of paths and trellises. The chapter on the practical aspects of seaside gardening is full of useful information for both first-time and experienced gardeners. An extensive plant list offers a broad selection of species appropriate for seaside conditions, from traditional garden varieties of flowering plants, vines, groundcovers, shrubs, and trees that will thrive by the ocean, to newly popular ornamental grasses and native plants.While Seaside Gardening will be particularly useful and inspiring to gardeners on the Eastern seaboard from Canada to Virginia, it offers valuable ideas and information to anyone who has a garden on or near the ocean. Especially noteworthy are the more than 120 magnificent color photographs of some of the most imaginative seaside gardens in Long Island and central Maine, regions where gardening by the sea has been a special avocation for more than a hundred years.

Great cover. But the author rambles on about herself and her family. Not interested. Was looking for tips on Seaside Gardening. Frankly never finished the book. Maybe it got better, but in the middle of the second chapter I lost interest.

Showcasing the gorgeous gardens of Long Island and the rocky coast of central Maine, the book's 120 color photographs show how experienced gardeners have created beautiful designs working with rocky or sandy terrain, harsh sun and wind, salt air and the ever-present danger of devastating storms.
The first half of the book is devoted to design, including "The Water's Edge," "Seaside Landscapes," "Seaside Color," "Pools and Ponds," "Porches, Patios and Decks," "Paths, Fences and Trellises." Informative photo captions identify the plants, giving practical and/or design reason for choices, together with some idea of what the garden will look like at other times of the year.
There are gardens that frame views, give privacy, obscure the intrusive edges of swimming pools. Borders combine perennials, annuals and grasses; windbreaks offer beauty as well as shelter.
Among the Maine gardens pictured is the Thuya garden at Asticou Terraces in Northeast Harbor, a semi-formal herbaceous perennial garden in the style of Gertrude Jekyll which today is a 200-acre park open to the public. Mrs. Thomas Hall's garden in Northeast Harbor on Mt. Desert Island features woodland paths down to the water's edge and an Asian style garden amid outcroppings of rock. There's a lily pond from Bar Harbor and a vegetable garden overlooking the sea at West Point.
The second half of the book includes advice for various seaside terrains and weather conditions, including soil augmentation, pest control, mulching and overwintering and, of course, plant choices. James offers an extensive plant encyclopedic (with some illustrations) for annuals, bulbs, perennials, groundcovers, vines, roses and trees, including concise information about soil and sun requirements.

This lushly illustrated book almost doesn't require copy. Full of perfect, appropriately informal and mostly easy maintenance seaside designs, this book is a standout. One tip, don't loan it out - it'll never come back! You'll return to it again and again, always finding a charming, practical solution to the challenges of a seaside climate.
