Whether you've been gardening for ages or you're setting out on your first venture into the world of plants, this guided journal provides a place to track all your garden chores, dreams, and observations. Each month, the journal provides room to record upcoming chores, dreams you have for your outdoor oasis, and the many wonders you observe in your garden throughout the year. Although numbered by week, the pages are undated so you can start your journal any year and any month you like. The My Garden Journal includes.... * Space for planning your overall gardening goals over the coming year. * 20 pages with areas to plan your garden layout, sketch an interesting flower or critter, or doodle when the weather is too nasty to get outside. For those with minimal artistic skills, you can use these pages for garden images from magazines or photos of your own garden as it grows. * 12 months of seasonal garden tips to give you an idea of what you may need to do in your own garden. The tips are followed by space to plan out your own garden's to-do list for the month. * 52 weeks of pages to record what's growing, how the weather has been, what you did that week, what you observed and any other garden news you want to record. * Room to imagine what next year's garden might bring. While the My Garden Journal may t turn you into a master gardener, it will make you a more organized and more observant gardener as you keep track of your chores, dreams and observations.
Tammie Painter grew up in the creative world of Portland, Oregon, and she continues to call the City of Roses home. Although she spent years working as a chemist in a behavioral neuroscience research lab, she could never quite tame her desire to express herself through words and images. When circumstances provided her the chance to pursue an artistic career, she seized it and has never looked back. As a writer, Tammie not only shows off her kitchen and garden skills in her non-fiction, but also has a passion for delving into and bringing life to history and mythology in her novels. She has been the recipient of numerous awards for her short stories and essays and has written hundreds of articles for local, national, and international magazines as well as the Internet. As an artist, Tammie's love of nature shines through in her botanical and wildlife art, but that doesn't stop her from exploring other subjects such as the shiny curve of a car or a peek into the streets of Europe. Whatever she chooses to draw or paint, Tammie's work is characterized by its attention to realistic details and strong colors. In 2016, Tammie had to honor of being selected for a solo exhibition as part of the Artist Exhibit Program via the Clackamas County Arts Alliance. Tammie plans to release Book Three of The Osteria Chronicles in 2016. The best way to stay up-to-date on Tammie's projects is to follow her blog at TammiePainter.com.
