d*s sundays in the garden *
i'll have to be honest, today's post is more like "sundays in the rain" than the garden. the weather here in brooklyn is miserable so hopefully these garden finds can remind us of sunnier times. also, if you're new to the site, every sunday i round up some great modern garden accessories and must-read garden links from the web, so if you're looking for something green, check back every sunday for some gardening goodness. this week i was really inspired by martha stewart's site. for all her wacky connecticut crazyness, martha can be really, really wonderful when it comes to organizing and getting things started. i find then when i approach any gardening project, it helps to have as much info as possible, and ms. martha's gardening section is indespensible for that. so, sit back, enjoy the finds and drop a line if you have a great garden to show off in the sunday garden column. as the weather gets warmer and things start to sprout we'll be showcasing gorgeous reader gardens. see you tomorrow!
martha's encyclopedia of plants: this is quite possibly one of the best ways to get to know the things you'll be planting in your garden. it's an indespensible resource for gardeners.
