REVIEW:
I have always love gardening, though since living in my newest home I do not have one. No, I converted my living room into a greenhouse of sorts. It's not like I use it anyway. We're always at the other end of the house. I got two massive front windows that give off too much light for the hubby to enjoy the tv in there anyway, so what's a gal to do?! Grow everything I possibly can!
This daily book has quotes from famous and not-so-famous people, all to do with gardens and gardening. It truly made me crave an outdoor garden again, but I will just continuously outgrow my living room! 
For gardening lovers, this daily gem is for you!

  1. I love plants, flowers, etc. but unfortunately have a black thumb. Everything dies with me (even aloe vera and cactus).

    Happy New Year!!!

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
