And being the beginning of a new year, I'm all itching to get out in the garden and get working. But it's cold and windy outside today, which is keeping me indoors.
Okay, so we're not buried in snow as much of the country is. But it's windy and in the mid 40's here. Pretty chilly for Texas.
So any gardening I do today will be the armchair variety - looking through catalogs and planning etc.
Then I started thinking that considering I'm such a keen gardener, I don't have much of a selection of gifts for gardeners in my store, other than some items featuring photographs of the birds, butterflies and flowers that I have taken in the garden.
Here's one of my current items, a Macbook Pro sleeve featuring a photo I took of a Swallowtail butterfly on some Dallas Red Lantana:
This beautiful daylily was practically glowing in the sun when I took this photo:
Here's another butterfly photograph from my garden. This time it's a Question Mark butterfly, available on a wrapped canvas or as a print.

When I did a simple search for "gifts for gardeners" on Zazzle, I realized how much there is to offer. From three ring binders that can be used for garden journals (how come I never thought of that?) to fridge magnets, T-shirts and aprons. The list is endless.
Here are just some of the wonderful gifts for gardeners I found from the many talented artists and designers on Zazzle:

Gardeners don't really need an excuse to garden, but if they did - this mug from Quotings includes a good one. It's cheaper than therapy, and you get tomatoes!
