Photographer Caitlin Atkinson and writer and garden podcast/radio host Jennifer Jewell teamed up to bring fabulous gardens of the American West to the rest of the garden world. In Under Western Skies: Visionary Gardens from the Rockies to the Pacific Coast, we see the diversity of the western landscape beyond the 100th Meridian. Caitlin and Jennifer speak on the podcast about the creation of the book, the work involved to capture the gardens on the ground during a pandemic and how they coordinated to put the book together of this magnitude when they were often not even in the same state. Each page will have you gleaning inspiration and ideas to bring to your own garden.
