Winter Reading

I think Santa has a soft spot for gardeners. He always seems to find something garden related to leave under the tree. The blog would like to know what garden related items you received this year.  Were there books, tools, plants, seeds, perhaps gift certificates for goodies, workshops or garden related travel? Once we have a good list we will put them on the blog. Everyone likes to shop with their eyes don't they?

To start the ball rolling here are the two books I received this year.

January garden.
Silent sleeping under snow.
Inside clivia blooms.
