I'm a Master Gardener in Snohomish County, Washington, so reference books like this are very
valuable to me, especially in clinics when clients want answers! The pictures are excellent and
large enough to make comparison to actual plants. I would have given the book 5 stars except more pictures showing foliage as well as the flowers would be very helpful.

A handy reference book to have on hand. Would have liked more weeds included but I take this to Master Gardener functions and it has been very helpful.

If you garden, and you live where there is wind this book is a must to figure out just what is coming up in your garden. The pictures are clear, and the descriptions help you know just what you are having to do.

On its own this book is not all that exciting. However, put in context with foraging, this is a very good book.

All photographs are very colorful and clearly shot. A paragraph or two accompany each photo of subject weed. A glossary, cross references of scientific and common names is included.

I do a lot of photography,and I like to know what those "flowers" I am taking pictures of are. This is a great reference for the flowers you see along the roadside, plus a little warning for the stuff you really don't want to touch or eat, a handy thing to know if you have children or pets. Great pictures.

I love the photographs. They make it very easy to identify the weeds in my large yard. All except for one that I can't find in the book but otherwise I think this will be a valuable resource.

A great book, wonderful pictures.
Really answers the question "When is a weed not a weed". A good book just to plow through for information, with excellent illustrations.
