It will take hours to read through this exquisite art & garden book. Small pages provide the backdrop for tiny, hand-lettered, watercolor artwork that bursts with the joys that gardening provides. Delightful quotes are bordered by cottages and flowers; herb names & their meanings grow up from the ground like the plants themselves; instructions for planting is given alongside miniature illustrations; historic tools are labeled and drawn as if from a vintage book found in your grandmother's library. Each page features something new, something unique--you'll find a new treasure each time you re-read. The geometric arrangements of text hold just as much charm as the illustrations, and both together create a gift book unlike any other. Glossy pages, hardcover with dust jacket.
