Garden Love




SHE WHO LOVES A GARDEN

Illustrated by Mary Engelbreit

Available here on Amazon

Sharing another of Mary Engelbreit's small gift
books published by Andrews & McMeel.

A perfect little gift for an Easter basket!

SHE WHO LOVES A GARDEN

is "a charming tribute to the joys of gardening
and all things green and growing."


The past few weeks have found me in the garden.


There is much work to be done.




And much joy to be found.



Spring color is the fruit of one's labor.

  2. Cute little garden book and gardeners! Well I know what you mean..I have much to do too..if the weather would cooperate! Started cleaning out beds and doing a little planting..the wind is fierce and I stayed in all day today..too much gardening yesterday! LOL. Hope your weekend is lovely...you should have warmer weather than we do and hopefully not the 40 mph gusts!

  5. It is so true that there is much joy to be found in gardening. Now if it would just stop snowing maybe we could do just that. I love your mosaic with all the bright flowers.

  6. You have so many beautiful flowers in your garden already!!! That is a really pretty pink iris! DH and I spent the last two days doing yard, deck and garage clean up, and still another day of work to go. (we never got to the side yards.) At least we can see that a few green things are trying to pop their heads above the ground. Finally!

  9. Hello Sarah,
    spring is the most inspirating time in the garden. I am amazed how many plants are blooming now in your garden. Our Iris just wake up from winter sleep.

  10. You are so far ahead of us in terms of colour! I have been rooting around in the beds, but have to be careful as the soil is still very heavy with water, and if I step on it too much it will compact to rock when it dries up.

  34. The little book and garden girl are so cute. I see she's busy digging in the violas with her sun hat on. LOL
    We worked a while in the garden yesterday and it was sooo hot 84 deg. and then we had bad thunderstorms last night and cold wind today. No gardening for me today. I'm going shopping!

  35. Sarah, I so enjoyed seeing your mention of Mary Englebreit in this wonderful post. She is one of our home town girls (so to speak) and I am always delighted to see how popular she has become. I once lived a short distance from her St. Louis Studio. She restored an old historic firehouse for her offices and studio and saved it from the wrecking ball.

    Mary Englebreit you gotta love her.

    Thanks for the visit to my post on Sunday Dinner. I so appreciate all those who stop by. I hope you found something to like and will visit again sometime.
