There’s a new book in town. It’s Garden Flora by Noel Kingsbury.
It is full of beautiful paintings and photographs.
It is also full of information about each flower featured.
Facts include not only the plants’ origins, but also their uses in medicines and cultural information.
The flowers chosen are featured in alphabetical order, so it can be used as reference.
It is an interesting read for folks with some science background.
This is not a “how to ” gardening book.
It’s full of fascinating facts about the plants you all ready have in your garden.
I read this on rainy days. The pictures are amazing.
