I do not plan to make it a habit to review coloring books, but I just couldn't help myself with this one.  I love it that much!

When you look at the cover, you cannot help but notice the amount of detail on it.  It is filled to the brim with flowers, vines, leaves, etc.  However, you may find yourself wondering "are the pages on the inside like what I see on this cover?"  The answer is a very strong and profound YES!!

Inside you will find many pages to help you relax.  Each one is filled with a design consisting of flowers, leaves, animals, and other things one might expect to find in a garden.  There are a lot of small details to the items on the page which will keep you pretty busy.

Not only will you find things to color, but some of the pages have prompts for you.  These include, but are not limited to, adding your own small designs to preexisting flowers, adding on to Johanna Basford's designs with your own drawings, and mazes.

This coloring book has a lot for you to do.  You will find hours of entertainment within just this one coloring book alone. 

It is sure to help you relax after a stressful day and help you feed your creative side.  However, from what I can tell it is not exactly easy to get your hands on this one, or her other titled Enchanted Forest, from what I can tell.  So, if you see one, I suggest you pick it up or you risk missing out!

This is easily a 5 out of 5 star item!
