When "Flowers" by Carolyne Roehm landed on my desk, I was astonished by the beautiful bloom on the cover. Against a pure white background, you can really take in all of the intricacies and subtleties of the flower, right down to the little "hairs" on the leaves. Roehm uses her camera to capture the beauty of flowers and explore the relationship between garden and gardener. The book includes an intimate look at daffodils, tulips, lilac, lily of the valley, peony, iris, rose, dematis, and dahlia. With each turn of the book's massive pages, you're immersed in the the gardens Roehm photographed. I can almost smell them! "Flowers," published by Clarkson Potter, goes on sale November 6, 2012. Write down that date because you won't want to miss this stunner.
