Connecticut Gardens: A Celebration of the State's Historic, Public, and Private Gardens is a new photography book by photographer Caryn B. Davis that introduces readers to 44 of the state’s most breathtaking gardens.
Caryn will present an overview of some of the 44 properties showcased in Connecticut Gardens, sharing their fascinating histories, designs, and human stories accompanied by a slide show of beautiful images from her book. Her talk will include an overview of Connecticut’s 15 historic gardens - why these gardens were established, how they were used, and how they evolved from utilitarian use to aesthetic. An introduction to CT’s public gardens – their establishment and benefit, along with notable designers of the day; and an introduction to some of CT’s finest private gardens - their owners, and the stories behind their inception and design. Connecticut Gardens is also in part a travel guide that will introduce attendees to new gardens to explore.
She is an award-winning photographer specializing in architecture, interiors, hospitality, landscape design, and travel photography.

She has two commissioned photography books, A Connecticut Christmas: Celebrating the Holiday in Classic New England Style, and Connecticut Waters: Celebrating Our Coastline & Waterways.
