Today is National Garden Day

Dear Friends, Today is National Garden Day and from where I live in Chicago it is still too chilly to actually garden. True I have picked up twigs and brought out a few of my beloved (and could be described as tacky) ornaments, but it is really just not time yet. So I am celebrating with garden books. And this is a favorite.

Sometimes it just takes one small idea from a book to get you started...

I am a big fan of the divided beds and in my new garden I am creating this year (no this is not it) I have followed this example of divided beds.
