Filled with passion, beauty and truly gorgeous photographs, this delightful book is about an extraordinary and unique garden and the trials and tribulations experienced by those living in it: Derelie, Bob, Jessee and Trudy. By 1999 Bob, plant hunter and breeder extraordinaire, was divorced and looking for a new wife. Derelie was happily ensconced in book publishing and not looking for a husband. But fate intervened and decided to introduce the pair at the Melbourne International Flower Show that year. A few months later Derelie left the world of books forever and took up residence in Paradise. Daily life changed dramatically and two dogs, both presents from Bob, became an integral part of the household and her daily routine. As well, the garden began to visibly change, especially in the direction of roses, Derelie's favourite flower.

About the Author

Dr. Derelie Cherry, Ph. D (University of Sydney). Although she worked in publishing for twenty years, commissioning books by some of Australia's best gardening writers and gained a doctorate in history, all Derelie ever really wanted was two dogs and a garden.

She never envisaged a husband in this picture - at least, not until she met Bob Cherry at the Melbourne International Flower Show in 1999. This book tells the story of her life since coming to live in Bob's Paradise.

            This is one of the most beautifully presented books I have seen. The author knows her subjects, takes her own photographs and is inspirational.

            Bob Cherry is a plantsman par excellence: explorer, breeder, grower, geneticist, designer the list goes on. The various aspects of his lifes journey are recounted with verve, as we travel through his garden, ably guided by Derelie and their two dogs. The whole is sumptuously illustrated with hundreds of photographs" - The Gardens Magazine of the Friends of The Gardens This beautifully presented book is one that every garden lover will enjoy and get inspiration from." The Sunday Canberra Times A beautiful hardback book, with high quality paper, full of exquisite colour pictures" - The Sunday Examiner Magazine (Hobart) Welcome to Paradise, the most impressive private garden youre ever likely to see ... a book of magnificent photographs and a book of stories..." - Good Reading, the magazine for book lovers Walled gardens paths hemmed in with absurdly floriferous roses ... garden pavilions, torrents of camellias, an almost unimaginable array of magnolias. A horticultural Valhalla. Leo Schofield "Each page is beautifully designed to reflect Derelies story about living in this very special garden with her plant-breeding extraordinaire husband, Bob. Paradise has become internationally known for its collection of plants; many of which visitors have never seen before. An Araucaria pine, grown from seed that Bob collected in New Caledonia, is the only one in the world. A unique garden and a unique book." - Fine & Country, property magazine March 2014 The book is an education in itself! If you like gardens, then you will love this book it is educational and inspirational as well as absolutely stunning and definitely deserves 5/5." What's Good To Do, May 2014
