Welcome to Prospero's Blog! My wife Mollie and I work together in our Rough Magic studio on the coast of Maine. I've always loved old books, memorabilia, curiosities and Americana (especially 19th century dramatic literature) and am happy to share my discoveries in my Etsy Shops.

Think Spring! Plan Your Garden!

Perennials: Illustrated Encyclopedia of Gardening
With several feet of snow on the ground and another wintry blast predicted, what better time to curl up with a steaming cup of whatever warms your heart and start planning your springtime garden?

No better time, says Prospero!

To get started, take a peek at this wonderful vintage book, offered by Prospero's Bookshelf. 

A vintage hardcover book, Perennials: Illustrated Encyclopedia of Gardening, was published in 1981 by the American Horticultural Society and is beautifully illustrated throughout with splendid color photos and charming drawings.

You'll read about ...
The Traditional Flowers 
Planning a Perennial Garden
Basic Care and Culture
The Art of Perennial Gardening

And there's handy Plant Selection Guide and an Index

So ... grab a pencil and paper and start sketching and taking notes, because ...

... you'll be donning your gardening gloves, grabbing your trowel
and digging in the dirt before you know it!
