On Earth Day, it seems appropriate to consider some of the gifts that Earth gives us. One of the loveliest and at the same time most useful of these is wildflowers.

If you are an admirer of wildflowers, you know very well that you need a field guide to help you identify what you see. If you live in Texas and/or want to know about the wildflowers of this state, one of the very best guides you can pick up is Wildflowers of Texas by Geyata Ajilvsgi.

I stumbled upon this book on the shelves at 1/2 price. I kind of live on a small bit of Texas prarie and have been trying to use apps on my phone and google to figure out what some of the many wildflowers around are. This book is perfect and I've been identifying things in my yard with it.

Thoughtfully and simply organized according to flower color, as well as alphabetically by common name followed by the scientific name. This sounds like a small thing, but makes a big difference when you're not super sharp on latin and identifying by genus or species. The organization according to color is especially helpful and easy to use, and one of the reasons that I rate this field guide so highly.

I had to find and photograph 50 (!) unique wildflowers for a class. Flowers are surprisingly copious and diverse. This book did not list many of them; however, it's accurate and has an easy to understand organization.

Also: sage and salvia common and scientific (latin) names, respectively, for the same plant family.

NB I did not read this one cover to cover, but it was an incredibly helpful reference on determining which flowers to use for a friend's Texas wedding. Being able to read through a book organized by COLOR was a thing o' beauty, folks. Great snippet of information alongside each quarter-page image of the particular plant gave scientific information as well as interesting tidbits.
