Using Library of Congress for Historical Garden Inspiration

March 30, 2012 Comments Off on Using Library of Congress for Historical Garden Inspiration

The Library of Congress is the cornucopia for information geeks. My favorite  thing is their extensive photo library, which is in large part online. It just so happens that within that  they  have a wealth of garden photos to pull inspiration from going into the weekend. If you hold your mouse over the photo, it will give you the photo title, so you can search the LOC website for more information. Have a great weekend!
