National Bluebird Society
If you love bluebirds as much as I do, check out the National Bluebird Society Web site. It features great photos of mountain and western bluebirds and lots of information about their needs. The site is easy to navigate and also contains easy-to-follow detailed drawings of bluebird box plans and much more information.
The Sunset Western Garden Book
The first thing you notice about this year's edition of The Sunset Western Garden Book (Sunset Publishing, 2001; $33) is its weight. Sunset added lots of new information to this edition, including an additional 2,000 plant varieties. The Sunset Zone Maps have also been redesigned and are more accurate than ever.
