finding Garden Lit in digital libraries

...is a great occupation. Here is a page from a book I found in Google Books.

"Pot-Pourri from a Surrey Garden" was written way back in 1897 by Mrs. C.W. Earle and this copy is in the University of Michigan Library. Read it online and save a tree, find a hard copy through Google Books handy search, or download it.

This is wonderful! I love old garden books. Ebay is another place to look for them. I've just started reading them online too.

Isn't it interesting to think that they were probably (I'm sure) planting much the same plants we are now? And here we are this many years later. Reading things like that are so interesting. That's why (and I keep saying I'm going to do this) we should keep garden journals for future readers.
