The Texas Coastal Bend is an area that includes incredibly diverse ecosystems ranging from coastal to semitropical to arid, with weather conditions ranging from 100-plus degree days to hard freezes; from hurricanes to droughts. Like the early Texian settlers, the gardeners of the area have found ways to flourish despite the hard climate, building gardens of great interest and beauty that reflect a cultural makeup as diverse as the ecosystems. In Our Back Yards: The Gardens of the Texas Coastal Bend is the first book to celebrate their successes. From the Live Oak Peninsula to shores of Baffin Bay, from the dunes of the coast to the caliche of the deep brush country, we are treated to a tour of gardens public and private, tiny and stately, manicured and wild, all of which, no matter what the size or style, reflect the gardener's love for the natural beauty of the Coastal Bend. We are privileged to be their guests, hear their stories, and learn something of their secrets as they open their garden gates to the team of John Watson, Carole Peterson, and Deanna Payne. In Our Back Yards: The Gardens of the Texas Coastal Bend is an 11 x 8 1/2 hardcover, clothbound book featuring more than 128 pages of full-color photographs, natural histories, and landscaping and gardening information. More than 50 public and private gardens are represented in 200 full-color photographs carefully chosen from more than 4,000 images.
