Pink Ladies & Crimson Gents: Portraits and Legends of 50 Roses
Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet?
Shaped like a miter’s cap or delicately hued like the pearl-colored petticoats of a duchess, scented like honeyed almonds or nodding heavily in the wind, every old-fashioned rose possesses a unique character. And their names–often drawn from history and mythology–have stories as enchanting and evocative as the flowers themselves.
This gorgeously photographed collection of fifty exquisite roses reveals how some of the world’s most storied, beloved plants received their names, and how the names go hand in hand with the flowers’ appearance and fragrance. It’s a voyage of discovery for rose connoisseurs, garden enthusiasts, and anyone else who appreciates delicate blooming beauty.

Our Shadow Garden
When a beloved grandmother becomes ill and is no longer able to be in the sun, her granddaughter is inspired to create a garden she can enjoy. She and Poppa work together in secret to transform Nana's garden into a night blooming oasis, a place where she can be with the creatures and plants that bring her happiness. As they work with seeds, trowels and wheelbarrows to cultivate moonflowers, star jasmine, and other luminous, pale, sweet-smelling plants, they discover the sensory beauty of the garden at night. They learn to listen for the call of the cicadas, the songs of the night-jars, and the scampering of a family of raccoons.
Everyone in the family is enchanted by the healing power of the "shadow" garden, a feast for all the senses and a true gift of love. Gardening facts and tips accompany the vibrant illustrations, which were created by children who are battling cancer.
