My library books today!

Oh wow...look at all these awesome titles I found today!!! I cannot say one sounds any better than the others...they all look equally GREAT! I found most in the gardening section in the 935.96 area, but a few are more in the biology area at 571.6and 583.56. I think I will read the rock gardening one first...I am interested in possibly trying to make some hypertufa rocks...I read an easy way of doing it at Dave's Garden last night...where you make up the mixture, and put a half shovel full into a grocery sized bag, and tie it off with a twist tie, turn upside down and wait two days and unwrap! Sounds so easy...the picture showed some quite cute rocks she had made too!!! You do not have to spray the inside of the bag with anything...the fake rock will come right out! Sounds too good to be true! Well...maybe I will give it a try this weekend! You see...we have ZERO rocks in south Florida...ZERO!

Julie, I think I have that P.Allen Smith Container Gardens book. For some years, I had very little garden space and did a lot of container gardening. When the relandscaping project was completed, I must have given away 100 containers!

Stapeliad-

Cool! Tons of great reading material. The Rock Gardening and Tabletop Garden books look like lots of fun to read. Let me know if the Tabletop one has any ideas for indoor succulent arrangements.

No rocks?! Do you mean to say you have iguanas the size of Buicks roaming the streets, but no rocks?!

I couldn't live without rocks. Seriously.

It is very hard not having large rocks (or even small ones for that matter) here...if you remember the iguanas...they were either on grass or on a tree stump! LOL...I wanted to try painting rocks once, but it is too expensive to buy them...there are none to be had naturally, and too expensive to ship. I am counting the days till I move to California! Everyone there...you are SOOO fortunate!!!

I LOVE going to the library and bringing home a ton of books on gardening. It's so much fun and you get some great ideas and information! Plus you don't have to buy the books until you've checked them out a bit!

Kelly-I'm with you about the library...I practically live there!
