Winter Reading, Courtesy Google

– Posted in: Book reviews

Carol of May Dreams Gardens made a wonderful discovery. Google has made several old gardening books in the public domain available for download. This sounds like a great project for the winter, once the seed and plant catalogs have been thoroughly marked up. The quotes she pulled from various books certainly make them sound enticing.

If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.

I’m a “leave it inner” also. Even a weed can be pretty in the garden . . . sometimes.

Thanks for the blog reference! I’m trying not to go back to Google books until winter when I have more time, but I will be going back to read more.
