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.

I've discovered a new author (for me) of historical fiction: Geraldine Brooks. I read "People of the Book" first which was an intriguing account of how an ancient Jewish illuminated manuscript came into existence and was saved from destruction through out history. Now I'm reading "March" an account of Louisa May Alcott's father's experience during the Civil War with flash backs to other times in his life. Fascinating!
