The Curious Garden

Spring has come so early to the Midwest. Here's a little gardening inspiration for your young ones with a great book, The Curious Garden by Peter Brown.
A little like the Pothole Gardener's tiny creations, a boy discovers a small collection of struggling plants among the concrete and starts to take care of them. Overtime the garden spreads throughout the city transforming it into a beautiful environment. If you haven't seen this book yet please check it out from your library or better yet it would make a super cute easter present.

Happy spring!

The Pothole Gardener

This has to be one of the most charming ideas- tiny gardens planted in city potholes.

Many gardens have themes that make them not only lovely to look at, but add a wonderful bit of whimsy.

This spring as you drive and curse the giant holes that winter has left behind, remember their potential. Visit The Pothole Gardener for more inspiration.
