The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based list of titles available only on-line. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Garden Books: Linnea's Other Friends
selected by Deborah Stevenson

It's been a mild winter here, so already birds are singing, bulbs are bulbing, and the gardening urge is setting in. It's easy enough to head to the proper point in the Deweys and pull out the Carol Lerner and Jerome Wexler to fulfill those hortico-literary urges, but more narrative approaches to gardening have their own appeal. Here's a bed of little beauties, mostly picturebooks for a group planting effect but with a few specimen novels as well; plant them and enjoy them, no weeding required.
