Oh you are too clever with your adorable garden signs and a literary garden tour! I couldn't imagine how your were going to share your books when you mentioned it. This is beyond creative and fun to see snippets of your garden mixed with books and dishes. What a WONDERFUL epilogue... your very own directional title totem pole!

It is hot as blazes here and this heat has zapped all my creative energy and fried my brain. Fall can't come quickly enough for me. We're looking forward to heading the mountains next week for a reprieve from the heat and humidity. Hope you're enjoying your foggy seaside retreat and cooler temperatures. :)

Oh, my! Your creativity is boundless! I enjoyed this SO much and saw many of my favorites there. Garden Spells, The Secret Life of Bees, etc. Your signs are wonderful and I loved seeing them together in totem style. Your gardens have always fascinated me. I hope the drought in California isn't effecting them too much. I want a bee donut!

Jain, I have been enjoying my tour through your amazing garden! I don't know if I would be able to focus on my book if I was surrounded by this diversity and beauty, with so many areas to explore and gates and bridges enticing me to go further into the garden!! I just loved this post. You are incredibly clever and creative. I've read a few of your choices and Bella Tuscany and The Olive Garden are two of my favorite books, but you have reminded me that I would like to read Out of Africa. Yes, I would love to get lost in your garden with a stack of books and those bee donuts! Linda
