...and the gardener. I love gardens and anything to do with gardening. Only I do not have the patience and time necessary to tend to one. That doesn't stop me from admiring all the pretty things associated with it and I'd love to share a few of them with you:
- **NEW**Garden Coil Hose: Great for watering your garden. And this hose hammock is the perfect storage accessory for the coil hose. I'm thinking the hammock would make a great storage accessory for ribbon too!
- **NEW**Garden Hose Guide: with Pineapple finials. Such a decorative touch.
- **NEW**Garden Labeler: Labels that print on special laminated tape that won't fade or peel. Great for labeling things in the garage as it will withstand heat, sun, rain and frost.
- Watering balls: We received this set as a housewarming gift and find it to be very helpful. The task of watering plants sometimes will slip my mind, so thankfully these balls are a big help.
- Wilbur the Watering Can: I've never seen one in copper in the shape of a pig. Very whimsical. And you can "talk" to the pig as well as your garden while you water it.
- Gifts from Monticello's Garden: Check out the Gifts for the Gardener section. My personal favorite is the topiary tool belt.
- Carolyne Roehm's Notebooks: She has one for each season - Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer. My sister has long-admired these books and I think they are perfect for the passionate gardener.
- A Passion for Flowers: Another book by Carolyne Roehm. I enjoy placing great picture-books on my coffee table. And when I have a moment all to myself, I just sit back and browse through all the wonderful pictures. Peaceful moments are a gift to yourself.
- Naturewood: Anything in this line from Pfaltzgraff would just be adorable. I wish they had a pattern of topiaries.
- Self-watering planter: This is what I need!
- Grecian urn planter: Couldn't help but share this link. I love urns!!
- Fresh Topiary: Be sure to check this site for preserved topiaries, bonsai and boxwoods. They are beautiful!
- The Constant Gardener: Now this really has nothing to do with gardening other than it is a movie about a diplomat (Ralph Fiennes) who is a passionate gardener and falls in love with an activist (Rachel Weisz) that is murdered. This movie is riveting.
Visiting Garden Centers just after Thanksgiving is so enjoyable. Seeing the beautiful decorations, lighted trees and the smell of pine. It can really put you in the holiday spirit. And there is nothing better than good 'ol holiday spirit.
