Pretty illustrations, very simple and colorful.
I also thought it would be fun to follow along in the Harris' Old Farmer's Almanac. I've always found astronomy intriguing and I think it's amazing how the phases of the moon and sun determine when plantings should be done. This little book is filled with great tips on how and when to prune plants, start the vegetable garden, what and when to plant, also, flowers and berrries and seeds for the birds. There are interesting stories of times gone by.
I'm already looking forward to planning the flower and vegetable garden for this year. Going through catalogs and magazines helps with the winter blues!
