(If you have children in your life ....) These are great idea books for outside gardening projects with kids. I also recommend: "Roots, Shoots, Buckets & Boots: Gardening Together with Children" and "Sunflower Houses: Inspiration from the Garden-A Book for Children and Their Grown-Ups." - all by Sharon Lovejoy
A magical book of adventures and appreciations written and illustrated by the author of Roots, Shoots, Buckets & Boots this award-winning title was published by a small press in Colorado in 1991. The reviews say it all: A fetching primer on gardening for children. . . . Irresistible (The Smithsonian). Celebrating the lore of the garden and the joy of interacting with nature,... it's a collection of inspirations for a Floral Clock Garden, rainbow, tea parties and a sunflower house.
