Here is my new favorite gardening book:
In a Mexican Garden.
It was published in 2005.
Written by Gina Hyams, Photos by Melba Levick.
I know I’m a little slow buying it, But I’m cheap. (My husband says frugal.)
I just found this gift certificate for Barnes and Noble that my girlfriend gave me a year and a half ago, and I finally got to use it.
In a Mexican Garden is a beautiful book full of color and inspiration.
I love color. Maybe a little too much.
My husband says if I paint one more room in our house orange that he’s moving out.
Our rooms aren’t all orange.
One room is bright orange.
One is not-so-bright orange.
One is sort of peachy-orange.
And one is yellow-orange.
The upstairs is yellow with some brown.
And, hey, the kitchen is turquoise, so there.
If you want to get some very beautiful and bold ideas for color, container gardens, garden furniture, garden artwork, outdoor rooms, trellises, pergolas, swimming pools, ponds, fountains, tropical, subtropical, and mediterranean plant material, get this book.
It’s also an excellent coffee-table book.
