A new favorite garden writer. Makes me want to use more desert plants and go see gardens in Phoenix and other desert settings. The only complaint I have is that many plants and gardens were described but not shown. There were many photos, and they were quite good, but I wanted more.

This is a wonderful book which delivers much more than I ever would have anticipated.
A must have for desert gardening! They even included local pottery cool.
Joan Yost
