So romantic!

Maybe it's because my husband brought me flowers for Valentine's Day (pink tulips!), or maybe it's because the cover shot of this book reminds me of my wedding flowers (pink peonies!), but whatever it is, I'm loving The Garden at Night right now. It's completely unlike your run-of-the-mill House & Garden/Martha Stewart take on botanicals. These photos are hauntingly beautiful, and the colors that the author coaxes from these flowers (by moonlight!) are stunning. This book is pure romance.
