Memorial Day is behind us, it's officially gardening season, and we're on the lookout for outdoor inspiration of all kinds. We've posted a couple of roundups of our favorite gardening blogs, but what we really want to know is... who do YOU read?
To get the conversation going, here are a few blogs that we keep bookmarked for beautiful photos, great tips, and helpful how-to's. It's not so much the size of the space (these bloggers range from balcony owners to rooftop gardeners to full-on landscapers) but rather the ideas and images that keep us coming back.
