I am beginning to get the urge to read garden books. It happens every year in January or February.
One of my favorite garden writers was the late Thalassa Cruso.
I found her book, To Everything There is a Season, at a used book store a few years ago. It is full of informative and reminiscent essays.
My favorite book of hers is, Making Things Grow Outdoors, but I can't seem to find it.You can feel her passion for her gardens with each chapter. I thought I owned it, but maybe it was a library book. Before the computer came into my life, I used to get armloads of books every week from the library.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
