One of the things I find most difficult about winter is these last few months before spring. I grow restless and I crave nature – I long for greenery and the smell of warm cut grass – I daydream about doing physical backbreaking lawn work in the hot sun.
My escape this time of year though are my books on gardening. In the summer I rarely have enough time to curl up in a blanket and READ about landscaping. Now I get to look over historical gardens and learn and draw plans, and dream about how things COULD be. Above are the latest books to enter my ‘gardening library’ most of them are gifts from my my parents and siblings and I looking forward to reading them until spring comes!
