A Day in the Garden: A Picture Book by Bettina Stietencron
This is technically a children's book and it is only pictures - no words. However, I think it is one of the best gardening books ever "written". And the fact that you aren't bombarded with words is such a relief. It allows one to sit quietly and notice all the activities going on in these incredibly detailed pictures as if you were outside by yourself observing nature.
The pictures (paintings) are beautiful and take you through all the seasons and times of day in this yard. A Day in the Garden is available from Amazon for $10.98.
