Unearth the true story of green-thumbed pioneer and activist Kate Sessions, who helped San Diego grow from a dry desert town into a lush, leafy city known for its gorgeous parks and gardens. Katherine Olivia Sessions never thought she’d live in a place without trees. After all, Kate grew up among the towering pines and redwoods of Northern California. But after becoming the first woman to graduate from the University of California with a degree in science, she took a job as a teacher far south in the dry desert town of San Diego. Where there were almost no trees. Kate decided that San Diego needed trees more than anything else. So this trailblazing young woman singlehandedly started a massive movement that transformed the town into the green, garden-filled oasis it is today. Now, more than 100 years after Kate first arrived in San Diego, her gorgeous gardens and parks can be found all over the city. Part fascinating biography, part inspirational story, this moving picture book about following your dreams, using your talents, and staying strong in the face of adversity is sure to resonate with readers young and old.

Geraldine, Countess of Mayo, made an exquisite and extremely important garden in Ireland between the years l890 and l925 when she had to leave the family estate. The garden was subsequently completely destroyed. Her gardening diaries, spanning over thirty years together with watercolours of the gardens and the plants she brought to enrich it from all over the world evoke a paradise now gone forever. Lady Mayos diaries are a lively insight into the world of gardening at the turn of the 20th Century the problems she faced, the triumphs and the disasters. The watercolours, done at the time by her father, are immensely accomplished and because they have never been kept in the light are as fresh and bright as the day they were executed. This book throws rare light on a hitherto unpublished garden in the great tradition of British gardening at an important time in its history. Lady Mayo is an engaging reporter who was genuinely passionate about her creation and this comes through in everything she writes. Her diary entries take you there and the watercolours many painted on the pages of her diary are truly exceptional.
