The Winter Garden
Winter need not be a season to shut ourselves indoors. In The Winter Garden: Create a Garden that Shines Through the Forgotten Season(Cassell Illustrated, 2006), Val Bourne gives us the inspiration to look at the winter garden all over again. She inspires us with beautiful photos, garden designs, and easy ways to add beautiful winter interest to any garden.
