"Through a Garden Gate invites you to a rare interweave of three arts-poetry, landscape design, and photography. The poems of Charlotte Mandel, inspired as she walked in the garden areas created by Vincent Covello, appear in this book face to face with Covello's stunning color photographs. The poems and photographs offer sensory experience as seasons change-water falling over rocks, sunrise aglow between standing stones, flash of lightning in a night sky, summer blossoms, winter icicles. This book opens the garden gate—enter."

“This book is absolutely beautiful.  Vincent Covello's photography is exquisite and Charlotte Mandel’s poetry is sublime. A treasure of garden beauty and poetic genius.”
 —  Sander Zulauf, Poet, Editor Emeritus of Journal of New Jersey Poets.
