Dream Plants for the Natural Garden by Piet Oudolf & Henk Gerritsen

I am usually quite happy if, when looking at a planting guide, I find a few plants that I can’t wait to add to my garden. This new collection, however, has me wondering how I will squeeze in the dozens of lovely perennials, grasses, and shrubs I now must have in my yard. Dream Plants for the Natural Garden is an enticing guide, filled to the brim with easy-to-grow, reliable, and beautiful plants.

How Architecture Works: A Humanist's Toolkit by Witold Rybczynski

A great book for anyone interested in buildings, architecture, and how we live. “Prize-winning architectural writer Rybczynski (A Clearing in the Distance) [supplies] an ideal layperson’s handbook on the fundamentals of modern and contemporary architecture. Here, architecture is treated as craft executed with prudence and conviction. The author doesn’t care much for theories, or buildings that fail to be practical, but welcomes a variety of design approaches, all of which make him a model teacher.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
