For Smith, gardening is all about the anticipation of a new season, the satisfaction that comes with digging and planting, building supports and structures, selecting plants and deciding how to arrange them--and then enjoying the delightful and inevitable surprises as the seasons unfold and nature transforms the original vision into something gloriously its own. Allen inspires us to extend the definition of living space to our gardens, transforming them into places of ever-changing beauty that are woven into the fabric of our lives. This book puts this concept into action, offering projects, activities, and decorating ideas that both bring the garden indoors and add touches of comfort and style to our outdoor living space. With step-by-step instructions and illustrations accompanying each of the fifty projects, you'll be able to dive right in at any time of the year.--From publisher description.

I love this book. I always thought of gardening as ending at the end of August. This book shows how to keep the garden going through the fall and beyond.
