Computer is working again, Garden book review & give away

Good morning Folks ~ My computer was fixed yesterday morning. YAY! I’ll write a personal post later. I have three book reviews to write and post, two will also be give-aways.

Being without a computer for 6 days was rough! Trying to do anything on a small tablet is rediculous in my opinion. I like my PC.

**********

Today’s book review is for the book “Garden Design – A Book of Ideas” by Heidi Howcroft & Marianne Majerus.

02-06-books3

This is a beautiful book, 311 pages filled with wonderful photos of gardens of all types to suit all personalities. Lots of great ideas to inspire you. A book you will want to look through at your leisure over and over again.

Some thoughts taken from the introduction:

“ Every garden, irrespective of whether it is a crate on top of a barge or parkland surrounding a country mansion, is a personal piece of paradise, tailor-made for the individual.

Some gardens are meticulously planned, while others just happen. There are no hard-and-fast rules for their design. It is all about personal taste, so who is to judge what is good or bad?

There is a garden out there to suit every one of us; it is merely waiting to be discovered.”

Below is the list of contents:

Basics
Question of Style
The Components
Greenery & Flowers
Furnishing the Garden
Difficult Plots & Tricks of the Trade

This book along with two others was sent to me by Firefly Books, for review, a give away and is/are mine to keep. Smile

For followers of my blog, leave a comment below to be entered into the give away, which will end Sunday, March 26th at midnight EST. I will do the drawing on Monday then post the winner.

The book will be sent via Firefly Books.

Next week I will post the other garden book.

Happy Spring to all ~ FlowerLady
