It was a busy Saturday creating a new garden with my cousin Russ. We spent the day planning, digging, weeding, setting plants, and scattering spring bulbs. All these plants were transplanted from his glorious gardens in Massachusetts. Some of the flora and herbs in his assortment are generations old. You can see by the final results in the slide-show album. Prior to today, there was virtually nothing but hanging plants, a couple of shrubs, and a stray perennial misfit here and there. I owe so much to Russ and his magic. Here are millions of thanks for everything. You truly are amazing!!!

I was busy reading a lot this week trying to hold on to the waning days of summer sunshine. It doesn't take long for tension to take hold when you get back to teaching.
I am determined to stay relaxed from the pervasive school stress while at home with reading.
This week to de-stress:
Going Down South,by Bonnie Glover
Tomato Girl, by Jayne Pupek
Red Sky in Morning:A Novel about World War II, by Patrick Culhane-Excellent
A Lady of Secret Devotion, by Tracie Peterson Romantic Historical Fiction.
The Fire, by Katherine Neville
You Are Here, by Thomas M. Kostigen-Alarming-mind-awakening book that will make you think about the cities and places on the planet that are most polluted and who is causing it. Can it be stopped?
