Native California Book

This wonderful project on the history and use of native California plants in landscaping around Southern California was the brain child of the Metropolitan Water District of Souther California. Written by Gigi Hannah and actress Rene Russo, the book featured several private and public gardens that utilized the beauty and diversity of California native plants and flowers.

The coffee-table-quality book included some spectacular photos and the Maureen did  great deal of research on the subject to honor the beauty and information of these beautiful and unique climate and micro-climates.
