I originally bought two books as gifts for friends who are master gardeners. I personally have no interest in gardening. I thought I would just skim through the book and look at the wonderful pictures and illustrations. However, skimming became reading and I found myself thoroughly enjoying the words and descriptions of the gardens and the love Beatrix Potter had in her work in the gardens. I also found so interesting the identification of the plants and areas from her real gardens to her books.

If you enjoyed Beatrix Potter's books or if you are are a gardener, you will throughly enjoy this book.
In the first half of the book the author presents the reader with a biography of Beatrix Potter. She was an author, artist and gardener. Her drawings(not only from her books), photographs from her gardens and surrounding area are beautiful. The second half of the book tells us about her gardens in the four seasons with lovely accompanying photographs.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book was carefully researched. I never knew she drew the pictures for her books, was a dedicated gardener and donated the land she owned to the National Trust in England which can be toured today.
