AN EVERGREEN SOURCE OF DELIGHT FOR GARDENERS
When National Geographic and The University of Missouri Botanical Garden get together on a book you just know that its gotta be good. More than 200 beautiful illustrations are reason enough to enjoy Flora Mirabilis, an exquisite book, but the interesting stories about how plants have had such a profound affect on our daily life adds another dimension.
I was contacted by National Geographic and offered a free copy of the book but I found it reasonably priced at Amazon.com for $23. When I'm not able to get outside to garden the next best thing is reading a good book on plant life.
