With the weather warming up in at least some parts of the country, Spring is in the air. The old saying is that “a young man’s fancy turns to love.” I always wondered what the girl’s minds turn to. Now I feel like I have the answer – gardening books.
If you live in an apartment and think you have a black thumb, then put silk flowers in pots on your balcony or patio area. Put soil in the pots and then put the stems into the ground. They don’t care if you water them or not and stay pretty all summer. You can put them away for the winter. They can be cleaned by gently spraying them with water, shake them out, and let them air dry.
However, for those of you who want to make the effort to work in your yard there are always new books each spring. For example, Gardening All-in-One for Dummies, Vegetable Gardening for Dummies, Organic Gardening for Dummies, and the list goes on. There are plenty of books available that are not a part of the “Dummies” series. You can find books about gardening specifically for your area and climate. If your budget is tight this year like some are, Kindle is less expensive, but you can also go to the public library. You may have a garden club with free classes to help you learn more about gardening.
For those of you who have no interest in gardening, then check out “A Turn in the Road” or “Hannah’s List” by Debbie Macomber – released this month! Jodi Thomas has a new book out this month, “Texas Blue.” These can get you started. Happy reading.
