Terrific garden reference book with a focus on creating a space for wildlife and pollinators. The layout and photography make for a beautiful book suitable to leave out on the coffee table. The gardening advice is a little basic without acknowledging much about different climates or growing zones, just giving some lists of best plants and then telling you to ask at your nursery about which plants do best in your area. The bulk of the book is taken up with information on species of birds, butterflies, bees and other pollinators. It's refreshing to see so many different listings on types of bees instead of just honeybees. There is a two page spread for each bird or insect with several pictures, basic info like habitat, size, favorite foods and how to attract them to your yard.
