A great find

I found this book at the grocery store in the bargain bin at 50% off.
Who knows how they get there but it is definitely worth more.  Possibly because the cover was torn.
There are so many good ideas in this book "Bringing the Garden Indoors" by P. Allen Smith.
Some of the things that I liked:
1.  Buy forsythia bushes at the garden center that are in bloom and put them in a tall container inside the house and bring a burst of spring inside.  Then plant them when you are ready.
2.  Take tiny white lights and dispurse them in your landscaping and cover the cords with mulch for a little twinkling at night.

Here is a picture from the book.  These are found items from walks and the beach.  Putting them in pretty containers and displaying them on the mantle for a lot of nice texture and variety.
