Wildflower Wonders: The 50 Best Wildflower Sites in the World by Bob Gibbons is a stunning collection of awe-inspiring, wildflower-rich, locations across the globe.
Of the 50 sites included, 28 are in Europe, 5 each in Africa and Asia, 3 in Australia, and 9 in North America. There are none found in Mexico or South America.
While I love almost all of the locations included, I do wish Big Bend National Park and at least one prairie location in the U.S. were included in the list. They are only listed as “other sites”.
Understandably, the author was trying to pick places that blended diversity and accessibility along with being large enough to spend several days exploring.
Each location includes a map and info about when to go and why. The accompanying text explains in more detail where to go and what to look for.
Wildflower Wonders: The 50 Best Wildflower Sites in the World is a great book to help assist in trip planning and definitely opened my eyes up to some new places that would be worth trying to visit.
This is definitely a great book to browse through while snow is falling and I’m dreaming of spring wildflowers and gardening!
