With the promise of Spring this weekend (yes, things still haven’t bloomed here yet), I have gardens and gardening on my mind.
I have been fantasizing about time in my garden for months. It was only last year, that our back garden really took root and I’m anxious to see if it is what I remembered, what made it through our long, harsh winter and what still needs to be done. Gardens are never ending and always evolving. That can be exciting or frustrating….but never boring.
In anticipation of time outdoors, I was thrilled to receive an early copy of Bunny Williams’ newest book, On Garden Style. The cover alone has made it one of my favorite coffee table books, but it is chock full of inspiration and practical information that will appeal to the novice or experienced gardener.

I have it on pre-order and can't wait for it to arrive! Hoping that your garden wakes up just as you remember it! Me – I lost a few things over this crazy winter but your are right, it is never boring!

This is one book that I definitely need! I'm sure you are having so much fun watching your garden come to life. I'm watching the rose buds on our arbor, anticipating the day the start to bloom. There are so many of them, it's sure to be a treat this summer. We are starting into "phase two" of our garden redo – it was supposed to be part of phase one, but it took so long for our neighbor to take down a tree that was growing onto our lot, we thought it would never happen. Came back from vacation and it was gone. So now we have some shockingly bare sight lines, but at least we know what we can plant in that corner instead of being in limbo!
I hope that the weather warms up a bit so you can get out in your garden and enjoy. No tulips yet, I'm guessing…
Happy, happy weekend, Elizabeth! XOXO

Might I remind you it was your very own "great" garden and home that inspired me to illustrate your home, shortly before you jumped into the great world of blogging!
So simple, plant a seed, water it, weed it and take care of it to flourish. Sounds simple, but a garden and a blog require patience and attention! Post after post you inspire me to see what's inside and out.
Spring will arrive in style! Always love your tips for giving and growing!
