Summary
If you're one of the millions of readers who grew up on Beatrix Potter's tales, then you know that her illustrations are filled with carefully observed flowers and gardens. Yet this aspect of her life -- one of the richest and most enduring sources of inspiration for her work -- has received little attention until now. In this engagingly written and delightfully illustrated book, Marta McDowell takes you on a personal journey, tracing the development and eventual blossoming of Beatrix Potter's life as a gardener, from her childhood interest in plants, through her development as an artist to her final years as an estate farmer and naturalist
Summary
Focuses on Beatrix Potter's life as a gardener, exploring the origins of her love of gardening and plants and how this passion came to be reflected in her work, and creating characters such as Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck, and Benjamin Bunny
