Last weekend our neighborhood opened it’s gardens to the public. We like to potter around in the garden, but this year we enlisted some professional help to enliven our front yard. We were thrilled with the results and exhibited it during the festival.
Living in the MIdwest climate our gardening season is very short. So when the weather becomes warmer we love to spend as much time as possible working outside. Plants and the summer go hard in hand for us, so I was happy to see this article yesterday featuring books set in beautiful gardens. I would like to read one of these, but equally they would make lovely gifts. Imagine the following pairings:
Kew Gardens + membership to Kew Gardens
The Savage Garden + bottle of Italian wine
The Signature of All Things + orchid
The Lost Garden + National Trust membership
Gardens of Delight + Italian olive oil
I hope you enjoy a little outdoors time this Sunday.
