Consider ‘Orchids’ for the Plant Lover on your List. #AMaryHoliday

I think that it is more than a coincidence that since getting a beautiful orchid plant for my birthday & discovering how much I love these exquisite plants, that I got the opportunity from Sterling Publishing to share with you the brand new, 200+ page “coffee table” style book, Orchids.

Featuring the genius shots of  Italian Photographer, Fabio Petroni, he reveals the magnificence of the orchid, a flower that often appears in works of literature, poetry, and art in order to convey a sense of elegance and charm. Each page featuring a magnificent orchid is titled by fun, creative & often, witty titles that represent each of the eclectic personalities like Privileged Young Lady, 3D Vision & Love at First Sight.

There is also much text to read & insight to learn. Unlike a lot of oversized hardcover books, featuring an array of photographs alone, Anna Maria Botticelli has written beautifully about each . A biologist and microbiologist with a passion for plants, Anna Maria has worked more than 20 years with various Italian publishers, including Arnoldo Mondadori Editore, Cairo Editore, Periodici San Paolo, and Pentagono Editrice. For Gardenia, Italy’s most important monthly magazine on flowers, plants, and gardens, she oversaw the production of several monographs, including one dedicated to orchids.

Now available by clicking here, this would be such a fabulous gift for either the book lover on your list, someone who loves flowers & gardening, or perhaps that special friend or relative with a new home, looking to decorate & collect unique books. I grew up fortunate to spend much time in the back yard with my Grandmother, who has always had an extensive array of plants & flowers adorn her living spaces. She would love this collection.

    What a pretty book, love the details of the pictures within the book =) and like your picture with the book next to the orchid… such a pretty flower, but I’m horrible at keeping them alive.

    • I really appreciate Sterling Publishing sending this to me, I really love it. & as for the plant, I have a black thumb, too, but this orchid you only need to water about every 3 weeks! 🙂 Awesome gift from Harmony & her bf.
