    "Beatrix Potter's Gardening Life: The Plants and Places That Inspired the Classic Children's Tales."

Beatrix Potter gave her readers glimpses of her gardens in the charming illustrations that accompanied her children's books about characters like Peter Rabbit, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle and Squirrel Nutkin.
Now Marta McDowell rounds out the picture with her new book, "Beatrix Potter's Gardening Life: The Plants and Places That Inspired the Classic Children's Tales."
McDowell leads her readers on a virtual tour of the gardens that were important in Potter's life and provides season-by-season descriptions of the flowered landscapes the author created at Hill Top Farm and Castle Cottage.
"Beatrix Potter's Gardening Life" sells for $24.95 in hardcover.
