This is a really fun little book of ideas for 35 easy projects you can do to enhance your garden. From simple little things like "concrete donut flowers" and mason jar bird feeders to more complex, yet easily built structures like a gardener's bench or a cabinet greenhouse. The instructions are well thought out, and the photographs help explain the projects. I identified several projects that I will be undertaking this spring.
