Spring Warm Up

Notes from the Shire by Nate

It’s mid-February. That means it’s almost March, which means it’s time to start thinking about Spring. Just because it’s below freezing and we could still get another snow storm doesn’t mean we can’t get ready for warmer weather. Here’s a few ideas to get the most out of the late winter and spring seasons.

This is a great new addition to my personal garden book shelves. Reynolds who has worked for Kew Gardens and beyond creates this primer for a new vision of gardening. Spiritual and ecological in nature she endeavors to find plants and designs that suit the soil; creating spaces for both inner and outer expressions of nature and ourselves. Beautiful & lavishly illustrated as well. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

My daughter and I used this book to guide us along when we made our own terrariums, as a fun little after-school project. The pictures provided great instruction and lots of inspiration. Our final projects didn't turn out quite as amazing as the terrariums in the book, but we'll blame that on operator error. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

As part of my desire to make my apartment into something more homey, I've been trying to grow a few houseplants. I'm not very good at it. I have the blood of many poor plants on my hands. I picked this up almost in desperation, and I'm so glad I did. It's got big beautiful pictures, easy to understand instructions, and enough good advice that I haven't killed my latest batch of houseplants yet! ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll
