About this book

The photographs in this book are the result of many years exploring this inspiring landscape and reflect the ethos of the place as embraced by the Elmhirsts, the founders of the modern Dartington.

“Carol Ballenger’s enchanting photographs are evocative, contemplative and sensuous. She has been able to portray the different moods and seasons of Dartington Hall Gardens in a way that fields, forests and flowers come to life”.
- Satish Kumar

"Carol Ballenger has a remarkable eye for what conveys the essence of place".
- Graham Hardman, Japanese Garden Society, UK

"... a true artist with an enviable talent for capturing those special transient moments within her photography: a leafy pattern on wet stone; a knotty root breaking the moss; or moody views floating above and beyond arable fields – all these capture the moment and hint at so much more".
- Graham A. Gammin, Dartington Grounds & Gardens
