Published by Hillside Press in October 2015, On Walnut Hill was written by local writer and Baltimore Fishbowl contributor Kathy Hudson with a foreword by Allen Bush. The 272-page book chronicles the 46-year history of the garden of Ruxton residents A.C. and Penny Hubbard. Foley’s photographs showcase over one year’s time the garden as it was transformed by the late and renowned plantsman and designer Kurt Bluemel.
For his photograph “Sun Shower,” also featured in On Walnut Hill, Foley also received this year second place in the “beautiful Garden category of the International Garden Photographer of the Year 2016 competition. That photograph is currently travelling throughout Europe as part of an exhibition that began in England at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
Anne Raver, the former garden columnist for The New York Times, wrote about the book: “On Walnut Hill is not just a well-told tale of A.C. and Penney Hubbard’s 46-year learning curve on a sunny, two-acre hillside on the outskirts of Baltimore. It tells — and shows, with Roger Foley’s eloquent photographs — how two beginning gardeners, with three small children, rooted their lives in the steeply sloping land…Any great garden changes with the seasons, and every hour of the day, but this one has changed the Hubbards and become their world.”
