I haven’t seen Seeing Trees by Nancy Ross Hugo, but I have seen some of the gorgeous photographs by Robert LLewellyn. This book promises to give many ways of recognizing trees in the most delightful way, through all the tree’s stages.
Timber Press, which publishes some of the most distinguished garden books around is holding a contest. A signed, 16″×20″ print of a Robert Llewellyn photograph from Seeing Trees, custom matted and framed (see contest site for image) and a signed copy of Seeing Trees could be yours. Go to the contest site by clicking here. The contest closes on September 9. winners will be randomly selected and contacted soon after the close of the contest. No purchase is necessary to enter.
“On every page we see the miracle of seeds maturing, leaves unfurling, and flowers emerging. But moreover, this book teaches us what to look for when we slow down and take the time — what we can see in the scars of a leaf, the twig structure, and the pattern of the bark. With profiles of the most familiar and beloved species, including the American Beech, the Red Maple, the Southern Magnolia, and the Tulip Poplar, Seeing Trees opens our eyes to a tree’s shy magnificence, and invites us to deepen our relationship with these earthly treasures.” Timber Press
