Everything is blooming at once!

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Love peonies!  These are from the grocery store, but the ones in my garden are going to bloom soon.  I can't quite remember all the different colors I have, so it will be a nice surprise.  I've been reading a lot lately.  Mostly memoir type books, coming of age stories...non-fiction.  

Just Kids by Patti Smith
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls
Charlotte au Chocolate by Charlotte Silver
Nothing Daunted by Dorothy Wickenden
The Flame Trees of Thika by Elspeth Huxley

and one great novel written about Maine in the 1800's...I really loved this one.  
The Country of the Pointed Firs by Sarah Orne Jewett

Thanks Cambridge Public Library...my current #1 inspiration!

Hello!  Didn't really mean to stay away so long...things just got busy.  But now it's spring and everything is blooming earlier than usual.  Lilacs are the best, aren't they?  Except for roses and peonies, but they aren't blooming yet.  Be back soon!
