Vintage Garden Journal

"Where you have a plot of land,
however small, plant a garden.
Staying close to the soil is good
for the soul."

~ Spencer W. Kimball ~ 

 Have you ever kept a garden journal?
I started one several years ago... and come across it every once in awhile.  It's fun to flip through and think about how my garden, and I through tending it, have grown!

Here are the free sources 
for my artwork:

so personal use recommended)

I appreciate your visit!
Stop back soon!


  1. I've never kept one, sounds like a good idea! Nice pages.

  2. I've tried to keep some sort of "record" of my garden, but would really like to do a better job of it. Maybe if I use one of your pretty graphics and make a journal I'd have a better chance of finding it to write in it. I'm a lot on the disorganized side! Thanks!♥♫

  3. I don't keep any kind of journal, except for the pictures we'd take as our trees got bigger etc... we're kind of like Johnny Appleseed. We've lived in a number of places over the years and have planted numerous trees/shrubs.
    I have a friend who has beautiful flower beds and I think I'll make something for her from these. Thanks so much.

    Beautiful garden journal pages and tags. They will make a very nice garden journal. Thanks so much for sharing them. Have a really great day.

  5. Megan, I like your quote from Kimball in staying close to the soil. I believe that the kinship we establish with the soil was pre-ordained by God. It brings such a peace to my heart when I attend to my gardens. August

  6. Thanks so much for these beautiful pages. No idea what I will do with them but I love them all the same.

  7. These are so lovely, thank you for sharing them.

  8. Beautiful page, will have to make a journal for my Sister and my BFF, both are avid gardners...and have green thumbs.


  9. These are gorgeous, thanks so much for sharing them.

  10. Thank you, Megan! These are much appreciated! I do have a garden journal, but it isn't anything as pretty as these papers so I may just have to use these for next year's garden instead of the boring records I have now.
