You won't find potted petunias or rigid rows of hot-pink impatiens in this gorgeous new book. Instead, Plant Life features luscious photographs of author Valerie Easton's own garden (also seen in Better Homes and Gardens magazine). Drawn from her popular column of the same name in the Seattle Times Pacific Northwest magazine, Plant Life invites the world into Easton's garden, offering readers a personal perspective from a master gardener. Organized around the 12 months, Plant Life covers a wide array of topics including climbing plants, leaves that aren't green, containers, garden paths, pests, and much more. Each chapter contains several essays -- some instructive, others philosophical -- relevant to that time of year, and features a "Now in Bloom" section focusing on plants at their prime and illustrated with full-color photographs.
