Thanks to NetGalley and Timber Press for the opportunity to read and review The Landscapes of Anne of Green Gables by Catherine Reid. Prince Edward Island is the setting of L. M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables series and this book brings all that Anne saw to the reader’s eyes with beautiful photographs, both old and new, plus the wonderful descriptions given by L.M. Montgomery in the stories of Anne and also her own personal journal writings. Also, an in-depth look into Maud’s life experiences, both happy and difficult, this book opens her world up to us and shows the similarities between herself and the fascinating character she created in Anne. 5 stars for this reverent and beautiful dedication to the author of a true classic!

I voluntarily read and reviewed this book. Thanks to NetGalley and Timber Press for the opportunity to read and review Potted: Make Your Own Stylish Garden Containers by Annette Goliti Gutierrez! Beautiful photographs and detailed directions make this a must-have book for creating imaginative plant containers. The book isn’t bogged down with instructions for planting because the focus is on the pots. A list of needed supplies and clear directions will help beginners create and enjoy beautiful containers that are show off worthy! My favorites are the metal water garden, the cinder block planters and the marbled pots- gorgeous! 5 stars for a wonderfully creative craft book to give your plants a special place.
