Here are a few of my favorite new arrivals Garden Catalog by Lee Valley is a great one for absolutely everything you might need for flower or vegetable gardening. They also have a wonderful online catalog that you can flip through or print.I perfer an actual book to hold and dream about all I want to do (or get my husband to do).

Another catalog I buy from every year is Vermont Wildflower Farm in Vermont.They have by far the best seeds than any other I have experienced. They tell me it's because theirs have no filler seeds that could contain grasses and weeds,YUCK!! I have enough of those on my own.

You can pick wildflowers that are best for your area of the country. They have helped me so much on how much I need for a paticular area,and I have never been disappointed,year after year! I noticed that they also have woodland and rare species of plants and seeds as well as veggies and herbs. So much fun to make plans for spring plantings.
Another catalog I have bought from many times is The Country House. I wish I had some photos to show you but trust me they have some awesome items.Check out their antique reproductions section,I so want the vintage painted pail 'n shovel. It would be so cute for my front porch.I have bought so many things from them especially to use when we built and participated in our area's Home Show's and Parade of Homes.
Finally I want to tell you about a huge favorite of mine MacKenzie-Childs. I have loved this designer,shop owner for years.The first time I saw her was in a magazine,I think it was in Victoria Magazine many years ago. I must confess I have never bought anything from this catalog.....but boy do I want to! My home isn't really decorated around her style,but that's why I love having a cottage and an office where I can do whatever I want.My office (in my day life) is whimsical so it would be a good fit.
