Garden Library

"I'd leave all the hurry, the noise, and the fray,
For a house full of books, and a garden of flowers"

-Andrew Lang

Short on bookshelves,
my library is stacked on a table in our living room.

I aspire to one day have a library table like those I've gleaned from the internet on Pinterest.

As I prepare to plant our fall/winter garden I go to my books for inspiration.  Some were gifts, some are references, and some I picked up just because they are beautifully photographed and/or illustrated.

Some of my favorites...

  • The English Roses:  a catalog of David Austin's rose varieties, includes beautiful photographs and descriptions

Maybe one day I'll get around to planting our rose garden...until then I daydream with my books

What are your favorite garden reads?
