It’s almost February and we are over the hump of winter. Just about this time gardeners start chomping at the bit to get back into their gardens. For some of us it’s going to be about 8 more weeks of winter. So for now you might want to brush away those cobwebs and get some new ideas with some great books and apps.
Get inspired and ready for Spring!
Planting: A New Perspective by Piet Oudolf and Noel Kingsbury – I love this book! I bought this one for an early, early Christmas gift because I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.
Check out the resource page for more great books.
I downloaded a few apps for my iPad that I have been really enjoying recently. Please add to the list if you found an app you like, I’m sure I only scratched the surface of horticulture apps!!
A Garden Life
The English Gardener
I am still searching for a good professional landscape/garden design app that I like. If anyone has found one, please share!
If you already have been devouring gardening information all winter long and need a break, feed the birds and read up on them with this great bird guide app Peterson Field Guide .

Ray and I have have been working on the greenhouse throughout the summer. Whenever we had some time off we worked on the outside trim and siding. It really is coming along beautifully.
Later on this winter we will do the insulation and interior walls and have it ready for when it’s time to start seeds and baskets.

The rain last night and the cloud cover this morning inspired me to go out and photograph flowers this morning. The light was wonderful.
