April showers bring May flowers. If you can't go outside to dig in the dirt because of the rain, you can stay inside and dig these two inspiring gardening books.

Part travalogue, part garden porn, Monty Don's Extraordinary Gardens of the World is a companion piece to his BBC TV show, Around the World in 80 Gardens.The book let's you tour gardens both public and private, practical and opulent. And if that's not enough, the book's design is pretty gorgeous, too.


Stephen Orr's Tomorrow's Garden: Design and Inspiration for a New Age of Sustainable Gardening] offers a different take on great gardening. Orr, the former garden editor for House & Garden and Domino magazines, and current gardening editorial director for Martha Stewart Living, is all about creating spaces that reconcile environment responsibility and economic realities.
