Endearing and heartwarming poetry comes alive with vibrant, vivid watercolor paintings inspired by the author's award-winning perennial gardens in Pennsylvania. My Grama's Garden follows the progression of 'garden growth and blooming' from spring to late summer... starting with daffodils and tulips in April, poppies, irises and lupine in May and June, foxglove and daisies, and on to varieties of beebalm, hollyhocks, crocosmia, and ligularia in July and August.. to name just a few!
Look for many varieties of butterflies and moths, including the life-cycle of a monarch butterfly!
There is much to see here. So, take your time, look at all the many flowers, insects and woodland creatures on each of the pages, many in plain sight, others not so easy to see!
Can you find the CAT, the MOUSE, and the LADYBUG in each illustration?
