I love that this author has lived in Wisconsin, so, many parts of the book applies to my garden. I liked the photography, beautiful and inspirational. I bought the hard copy for my home library after reading the kindle version. Great resource - lots of information!

a little bit hard to follow ... lots of great pictures though. I think I need an idiots guide to succulents instead perhaps.
