Since I was a child, I remember being enamored of the Oriental influence in architecture, home décor, and especially gardens.  Growing up in the desert of Arizona, there weren’t many Oriental gardens around, but there were books and paintings.  I was always drawn to the simple, clean, asymmetrical lines of anything Oriental.

My first introduction to a real Oriental Garden was Anderson Gardens in Rockford, Illinois.  I know, you wouldn’t think that there could possibly be something this authentic and beautiful in the Midwest.  I didn’t either until I went there.  It was then that I decided that I had to do a book about Oriental gardens and the peacefulness that they invoke.
