"Ruber's inspiring and ethereal closeups of some of our best-loved
flowers will doubtless provide the motivation to sprinkle some
flower seed this spring, while Foster's clear, intelligent writing
is sufficiently robust to welcome novice gardeners into the fold
and provide experienced flower growers with something new to try."
