The Plants and Places that Inspired the Classic Children's Tales
by Marta McDowell
My Thoughts: I must admit to being a gardener as well as a big fan of Beatrix Potter. Peter Rabbit in his little blue jacket will always be a favorite fictional character. This is a lovely book filled with Beatrix Potter's gorgeous water colors and photographs. It's a wonderful tribute to her favorite outdoor spaces. I especially loved seeing her garden photographs beside her beautiful illustrations of the same plants.
