I love gardens and I love books. It is always so pleasing to walk through the library's packed shelves of garden books. The wide variety of books available on gardening can easily keep us busy throughout the winter months here. With winter wanting to hang on for a little longer than hoped, I've been gardening vicariously through a variety of books. I always like to try on books through the library first (I think I love libraries as much as books and gardening) before I purchase it. If I bought every gardening book that I thought looked interesting there would be nothing left over for seeds.
This book has been on hold for ages and it took me several months to actually get the ability to take it out. Now that I have my hands on this little gem I fully understand why. Here are the reasons that this book is going to make it into my personal collection:
I pulled this image from Pinterest because I think it is wonderful design that can accommodate many different locations and tastes - literally. This design is so simple but with such impact that you could recreate it in your yard using ornamental plants. However, if want to introduce some edibles to your yard, this design would lend itself to this purpose very well.
This could be used as it appears, along a wall, or the design can be used to create a “room” within a garden or yard. If you’re on a budget, the design is simple enough that you can add to it every year to extend it around a yard. Alternatively you can invest in one element each year and build to the final design.
