Bazaar Best Sellers!

I've had this book for years and years. Published in 1983, it is full of ideas (plus instructions and patterns) to inspire and even to improvise . I think you can still buy it on Amazon... for a reasonable price too.

With many bazaars and summer fetes etc imminent, here goes:

Today's book...Good ideas for your Garden!

Guaranteed to inspire you to get out into the garden, is this lovely book from Readers Digest.

And if you don't have a garden then it is certainly lovely to browse this book... and escape into the many gardens shown in these pictures.
One of my faves.

This week I'll be mostly reading....

I don't get to Wisley Gardens very often.
When I lived in Surrey, I was a frequent visitor. There was nothing better than to nip over, after school, on a lovely summer's evening.
It was the perfect way to forget the stresses of the day and unwind.
And although I only had a tiny garden in those days , I would rush home, full of inspiration and new ideas for my garden.
I recently inherited piles of these lovely magazines ...or should I say Journals of the RHS.
I'm going to try to read one a week ..LOL! (Some hope!)

I'd love to visit Wisley again. (Hint to dear DH!)

I 've also had a bit of a 'sort out' of some of my books..too many books and not enough shelf space..!

Not to mention the cookbooks, gardening books, fiction, childrens books etc etc
In our family we love books!
Next week on my blog, I'll be showing a book a day...amongst other things ;-)
