    "Conifer" is an arboricultural term meaning, literally, a cone-bearer (such English words as "refer" and "aquifer" also use the FER Latin root, meaning "to bear"). Trees and shrubs that fall into this category reproduce by forming a cone rather than a flower as a container for their seeds. It is this fact regarding reproduction that points us to the difference between evergreens and conifers.   This book is recommended by the American Conifer Society. It is useful for both the beginner and more experienced conifer gardener. It is well organized and clearly written. A handy reference tool for those planning a garden or if you just want to check out a plant you saw in a garden or nursery. A must get for gardeners who take the hobby 5/5(5).

I found The Beautiful American to be a well written fast read. It certainly gives a different point of view on the happenings in the late 20's and early 30's of the art movement in France. I didn't realize that Lee Miller was an actual person until I read the final notes at the back of the book/5().

The Beautiful American is the story of a real person in a fictional novel. The Beautiful American is Lee Miller, an American surrealist photographer who lived in Paris before World War II, then the U.S., then England. The story is told from the point of view of American Nora Tours, who is a fictional character/5.

Thoughts: This is the most beautiful/incredible book I have ever come across in my life. It's attention to detail and graphics are outstanding. The lyrics of America the beautiful are the words to this book and it just makes you feel so patriotic. America really is beautiful and this book shows that statement off well/5.

I could only narrow my list down to 10, plant-mad person that I am, but with hints of the winter landscape in the cooler air, I’m thinking of just how important evergreens are.

And not just to me. I purchased Conifer Country by Michael Kauffmann, which has identification information and suggests hikes in Northern California, where this great, conifer diversity exists. As conifer mania had become a family passion, my plan was to hike my way to conifer knowledge and, then, into the American Conifer Society.

Three of my most beautiful firs are grafted onto Abies nordmanniana rootstock. I have four firs which have survived at least six summers in my yard. My Abies magnifica ‘Nana’ is probably the biggest surprise. This western North American fir is not one I would expect to do well here, but is full, colorful and grows at its expected rate of 3.
