Accompanied by charming and accessible text, the floral centerfolds of "A Journey to Nine Islands" invite the reader to participate in the world of the Chicago Botanic Garden - one of the nation's most-visited public gardens and a preeminent center for learning and plant science. This remarkable volume showcases these lush and extraordinary gardens with ninety-six pages of beautifully reproduced full-color photography - capturing images from Chicago Botanic Garden sites as diverse as the English Oak Meadow, the Rose Garden, the Prairie, and the exquisite Heritage Garden.The breathtaking images featured in this volume represent only a small portion of the stunning blooms on view year-round at the Botanic Garden - a magisterial landscape that changes with the seasons, welcoming plants like the late-blooming sawtooth sunflower in the early autumn and the panicle hydrangea in the heat of midsummer. A fascinating read for the weekend gardener, a thoughtful gift for your favorite flower lover, and a beautiful, portable reference to the wonders of this urban oasis, "A Journey to Nine Islands" is an impeccable companion to this national treasure.
