Every year in the garden is different. Aside from the perennials that come back each year, I also have containers that I enjoy trying new plants in. I’ve long had a goal of keeping a garden diary so I could easily look back to see each year to see what worked well and what didn’t.
Thanks to Make My Notebook I finally have one! And it couldn’t be more perfect for the task with it’s happy garden gnome on the front. What I also loved was that I could choose the background color, and what style of paper I wanted inside (plain, lined, grid, planner, or combo). For the purpose of my garden diary I wanted plain paper.
Using this camera I took photos of all the containers, and parts of the flower beds. The little instant photos worked so well for the task! Then I simply made notes next to the photos in the book. Here is when it helps to either have a good memory, or keep the tags on your plants.
As you can see, there was plenty of room for the photo, and for a good description. What you don’t see in the picture is the quality of the paper. This paper is VERY nice. A notebook like this could be amazing for an artist sketch book, and so much more.
I can’t wait to add to the garden diary this fall as I replace our fading pansies with ornamental cabbages! It will be so fun to look back through the years too, and see how things changed and how they stayed the same.
I’m also excited at all the other fun options for personalized notebooks too. The process of ordering and creating the notebook just as I wanted it was easy and fun. If you need unique gift ideas be sure to check out Make My Notebook, they have a lot of options.
