Well-Read Intentions For Gardening in the New Year

Now that we’re well into the new year, we’ve all had plenty of time to think about our New Year Resolution. I don’t know what your dictionary says, but mine says the meaning of resolution is to resolve something. How many of us have actually done that? Now…intention, consideration, contemplation? Those are better ”tion” words to use after the words “New Year.”

As for what my New Year “Intention” is, I want to, well…read more. Taking into consideration I have hundreds of books (all of which my mother has read!) that I’ve been contemplating reading, if only I put my smartphone down more often!

With that said, when searching for well-read gardening books, I require not only to be entertained, but to learn from it, and, to be visually inspired…and dream!

So here are a few books (that I would like to add to my already bulging bookcases) that fit my requirements:

I, for one, have my own botanical photos, many to be exact, that my daughter has so graciously made into a photo book for me through an Online Photo Printing Website. Maybe someday I’ll get to frame some of my own flower/plant photos too….and so, another “resolution,” as some would say.

OK, so I confess, I now have to step away from the smartphone! Yet another “resolution” to resolve….sigh, I will have good intentions of considering contemplating that for the rest of the year! Although, with these books it won’t be too hard to do!

Here’s to some great reading!
