Wouldn't you love to win a book that would give you some wonderful ideas about creating a decorated garden room?
This is my April Giveaway. It is a beautiful garden decor book written by Tessa Evelegh with gorgeous photographs by Debbie Patterson. The book shows you how to design and make a beautiful outdoor living space without the emphasis on gardening and growing.

Create lovely restful areas in your garden where on those hot July days, you can escape with a book and a cool glass of ice tea. Tessa also includes easy garden projects that you can make to add a personal touch to your outside space. How about a "pebbled outdoor rug" or decorative effects for your pots, walls and fences? Arches, pergolas, playhouses, and water features are just a few of the topics you will read about to help you create personal touches.
I love statues in gardens. Garage sales and flea markets are excellent places to find some these treasures.
This is another sample of a lovely vignette in this book. Don't you love the texture of the judie next to the pots and plants? This would bring a corner of your garden to life with very little effort and little cost.
This is also one of my favorite things to add to my garden ... chairs. I love to collect funky old chairs from yard sales, Goodwill and even from trash day in the neighborhood. Chairs look so inviting in a garden with pot of pretty flowers sitting on their seats. I have even stacked a child's chair on top of a regular chair to give some height in a garden setting and then it's fun to add a plant on the top chair that will cascade down this handmade structure.


Just leave a comment at the bottom of this post with a garden idea that you have seen or used in your garden .... like I did with the chairs in my garden above. Something simple and fun or a favorite plant or vegetable that grows without a lot of attention. Anything garden related. That way, we can share all of our ideas with each other and we all become winners.

The draw will be on Thursday, April 22nd at 9:00 am EDT. Earth Day.
