Over the years, Warne acquired a variety of other classic books.

And her characters—Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle Duck, and all the rest—exist in a charmed world filled with flowers and gardens.Beatrix Potter’s Gardening Life is the first book to explore the origins of Beatrix Potter’s love of gardening and plants and show how this passion came to be reflected in her work.The book begins with a gardener’s biography, highlighting the key moments and places throughout her life that helped define her, including her home Hill Top Farm in England's Lake District.It's divided into three parts; the first, about Beatrix's life, the second about the seasons in her gardens, and third is a travelogue-like take of visiting her home(s) today that also identifies what has changed and what hasn't.Lastly, the back of the book contains tables about the plants in her gardens. It is a delight and one that I not only go back to time and again but one I often give as gifts to my friends.
