We are lucky to have some of the most beautiful and diverse gardens in the world here in California. These two new books showcase many of them and are packed with gorgeous photos and creative ideas for the home gardener, garden enthusiast, and garden designer. Let The California Garden Tour be your guide to planning a garden-filled road trip, and keep Private Gardens of the Bay Area on your coffee table for ongoing inspiration.
