My gardening life changed the moment I snatched this one off the shelf at a local bookstore. Every photo on every page was inspiring. Usually even a great book on gardening has a few 'slow' spots. But not this one.
With over 300 sensational photos, there's lots to see.
And it's not all prickly cacti. There are dazzling flowers, water features, colorful walls, and nifty garden nooks throughout the book.
There are chapters on climate, courtyard gardens, small gardens, sculptural gardens, wildlife gardens, plants for xeriscapes, and a special chapter on garden design.
Usually the Sunset books are for beginners. But I found myself entranced by the designs, the colors, and the creative format of this almost 200 page book.
As you can see by the images of my front garden, I've got a southwest spirit even though I garden in the eastern part of the state.
That's it for this time. For over 100 more garden reviews, visit my nifty garden friend, Holley.
Her colorful button is up there on the top of my blog!
Thanks for galloping on over to my book review, partner!
Until next time,
