Sounds like a wonderful book - I am going to look for it. Your garden re-design has been very inspirational to me as we look around at next garden steps, so the ripples are moving out to others as they are in the sand garden.

I have two of Roy Strong's books on gardening in small spaces, purchased when I had a truly tiny garden, but I wasn't familiar with the last two you mentioned. I'm going to look for them!

CECI — What a lovely compliment. I am trying to make lists of what to order and what not to order. More shrubs, ferns and sedges and fewer flowers. We'll see how good I can be — or not be.​

KRIS — Check them out on Amazon where you may be able to look inside to see if it really interests you.

Sounds like a great book. I ordered a book you talked about years ago (The Beckoning Path) and was inspired about dealing with my woods. Well, the woods defeated me - at least so far - so now I am going to read it again. Winter is a better time for working anyway - ticks, poison ivy, etc. I'll have to check out this book, too.

BARBARA — It's really a dream book. So many gorgeous gardens with trees and hedges that take a lifetime​ to achieve. But I did find a few ideas to consider.

Such an inspiring blog post!


Love this. It was a beautiful and eventful year, wasn't it? Thanks for the book ideas.
