Keep an Eye on Your Garden

The Bizarre and Incredible World of PlantsTake a look at a flower in your garden.  Pretty, right?  Well, take a look at the photography book The Bizarre and Incredible World of Plants by Wolfgang Stuppy, Rob Kesseler, and Madeline Harley.  I kept having to remind myself that I wasn’t reading a science fiction book.  Creepy… yet strangely beautiful.

 

When Plants Go Bad

Book of WeedsThe shelves are lined with books about dealing with bad behavior – in kids, in teens, in spouses, in pets. Well, add another bad-behaving item to the list: PLANTS. The Book of Weeds: How to Deal with Plants That Behave Badly by Ken Thompson gives naughty plants their due attention. You’d think Thompson would just give general advise on getting rid of weeds, but he treats each one in detail. Whether it’s Ragwort, Creeping Buttercup, or Goosegrass, you’ll learn how it succeeds, what to do, and the silver lining if you decide to keep it.
