If your garden is located in a mild winter region, with a long growing season and almost no winter freeze, where summers are either hot and dry or hot and humid (similar to zone 9 in the US – Central California, parts of Texas and central Florida) you may be interested in some of the ideas we have to share here.

On the other hand – if you’re an arm chair gardener – we invite you to scroll through our photos, check out our herb and craft ideas and just enjoy without having to roll up your sleeves and pull on your work gloves. Click a sign for the seasons…then tour all of our offerings.

Seasonal Garden Notebooks

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy:
They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” _Marcel Proust

LouisaMay Alcott
