One Hundred Flowers by Georgia O'Keeffe (B&N Books)
Although she did not consider them her specialty, Georgia O'Keeffe produced flower paintings so unique and compelling that for many people they remain the quintessence of the genre. No delicate Impressionistic pastels for O'Keeffe, whose garden is filled with fabulous, gargantuan blooms steeped in bold, intoxicating color and sweet perfume. Enlarged to Brobdingnagian proportions, these blossoms sing a siren song, inviting us to disappear inside the velvety, deep recesses of countless funnels, bells, and trumpets, or losing us among the whorls and folds of a thousand fragrant petals. Culled from museums and private collections around the world, this gorgeous, oversized book collects 100 of O'Keeffe's astonishing flower canvases, displaying to perfection the sumptuous color, lavish detail, and sheer sensuality that imbue these beautiful and distinctive artworks. And, though they are bound to create an astonishingly beautiful book, dozens of these brilliantly colored plates lend themselves nicely to matting and framing. 13" x 16".
Georgia Wild Flowers
For whatever reason, the Georgia Department of Transportation beautifies random stretches of highway and interstates with wildflowers, telling the teams of bush-hogs to leave vast swaths of brightly colored flowers alone. The one where I took these pictures is just outside of Dahlonega, Georgia.

This was the garden display at the main entry to the Southeastern Flower Show. Pretty cool, and very colorful.
Wildflower lovers across Georgia know Hugh and Carol Nourse through their popular slide lectures. Countless other enthusiasts have seen their glorious wildflower photographs in books and magazines. Here the Nourses draw on years of travel around the state to share their favorite places for seeing wildflowers. Of the many walks the Nourses have taken, these are the ones they return to most often because of the density or the unusual nature of the floral display. All twenty of these wildflower walks are on public land; everything you need to know about how to find them and what to do once you're there is included.
Five walks are presented from each of Georgia's four geographic regions: Cumberland Plateau/Ridge and Valley (northwestern Georgia); Blue Ridge (northeastern Georgia); Piedmont (Georgia foothills and fall line); and Coastal Plain (all of Georgia below the fall line). For each walk, a scenic photo gives a hint of the locale's overall character. In addition, five of the wildflowers encountered on the walk are profiled with a photograph and a detailed description. All of the wildflowers on these walks are native to Georgia. A few are rare and endangered.
Coverage of each walk includes directions and a trail map plus information about:
- flowering season
- peak flowering period
- flower habitats
- walk length and difficulty
- restroom availability
- applicable fees
Common plant names are used in the main text; the index lists both common and scientific names.
