Be a Flamingo

Sarah Ford
Authors:
Sarah Ford

Flamingo is that one friend who always brightens a room as soon as he walks in. He is always the first on the dancefloor and the very last to stop boogying. He has never tried to dress like a Parisian, never followed advice on what not to wear, and certainly has never tried to tone down his natural pinkness; he knows he is perfect just the way he is. And even when life throws Flamingo a curveball, he is always ready to embrace the unknown and jump straight in.A gorgeous little gift book of motivational sayings and hilarious axioms, Be a Flamingo is a perfect pink pick-me-up gift for a friend who needs a confidence boost, or great as an impulse self-purchase when you feel you need to start tooting your own horn a little louder. Because we could all do worse than taking a leaf out of Flamingo's book.

Inspirational colour photographs of potagers and kitchen plots capture the essence of the creative approach to vegetable growing. Techniques are described in clear stages and illustrated with full-colour step-by-step artworks, while an A-Z directory includes more than 150 edible plants with key facts on their cultivation, supplemented with ideas on how to grow them to maximum ornamental effect.
