Windcliff is a beautiful book about world- renowned plant collector Daniel Hinkley’s two iconic private gardens, Heronswood and Windcliff, both in Washington, and how one begat the other. Part memoir and part hands-on gardening book, Windcliff showcases Hinkley’s gorgeous, harmonious, low-water plantings, which overlook Puget Sound. His passion for plants is infectious and Claire Takas’s photography is breathtaking. This inspiring book is one to cherish. — S.B.
