When Mae's family moves to a new home, she wishes she could bring her garden with her. She'll miss the apple trees, the daffodils, and chasing butterflies in the wavy grass. The city has buildings packed tight together; there's no room for a garden in the city. Or is there?
When Mae and her mother go exploring, they find a florist shop called Florette with a window full of lush, green, beautiful plants. Full of inspiration, Mae starts her own little garden, and as it grows, it draws in new friends and helps Mae find her place in her new city. Mae's story, gorgeously illustrated with vibrant watercolor artwork packed with greenery, is a celebration of friendship, resilience in the face of change, and the magic of the natural world.
"Mae and her mother find a park — and then they stumble on a magnificent florist’s window dense with lush, tropical greenery.... A small plant Mae finds nearby provides her with the start of a garden of her own — a garden that grows, and that draws, little by little, many new friends." — Publishers Weekly
