Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Summer is Here

I've started my summer list of books. Though I've been reading through the year it's seems appropriate to make a list of the books I read in the summer.

Just finished another Maisie Dobbs novel by Jacqueline Winspear. It's a mystery series that takes place in England in the years after World War I. A friend in my book club recommended the series to me and this is the fourth one I've read though the previous one was out of order. Unlike some authors that have a hard time updating the new reader to a series if it isn't read from the start, Winspear does a good job weaving in the information about the protagonist without overburdening you with old facts. Overall they are good quick reads.
