I've been wanting to post all week, but have been spending every available daylight minute in the garden. I just love Fall gardening! The cooler weather makes it just right for digging in the dirt. Every Fall I'm moving my plants around - it's like moving furniture, I can't help it!

Yesterday (Saturday) morning Teen and I slipped away to go to a neighboring town's library book sale. We had lots of fun! Here's what I got:
The Hans Brinker book is from 1945. Let's Go to the Capitol is from 1959 - I just love the cover!

I also picked up a Garden Magic book - the one on the right. This edition is 1941; the smaller one is 1947. Now I have two! The second photo shows the cover of the smaller one.

Teen's books were an eclectic mix of Manga (Japanese cartoon/comics), The Green Lantern, a kids book about a bunny (she likes cute bunnies), Transformers, Pokemon, and two Sociology books - why? She said Sociology looked interesting! LOL!

I love to go to our library book sales...but I have to get there early before the “antique” books on quilting and embroidery are gone. I also love to buy old children’s books. It looks like you all did really well. Then your ending the post with your beautiful sunflower was fo colorful.

I love Fall gardening too. No sweating and fewer mosquitoes!
I like the cover of the Garden Magic book. It's what I wish my garden looked like!

What a find! Old gardening books are the best I think....chock full of great advice! You know so much about it too....since moving South...I feel like a dunce anymore...everything is so different here when it comes to gardening and the soil...well...let's just say raised beds are the ONLY way to go around here! I know what you mean about moving plants, dividing and "redistributing"....all for FREE! Happy Fall!
