And I Shall Have Some Peace There by Margaret Roach of A Way to Garden dot com. I mention her and her site often. If you garden at all, hers is a must read and visit site. Even though I am in a Zone 10 garden and she in a Zone 5B (or A....can't recall at this moment), and our gardening is so very different, sometimes it really isn't. I gleen tidbits here and there, and truly just enjoy the visit. If you don't garden, just enjoy the beautiful pictures in her many slide shows. Did I mention the wee bit of envy I have over how Ms. Roach escaped the big city to dwell in the country? Her home and garden are her life's work now, and I find the idea of that absolutely wonderful and peaceful.
Hopefully, you also saw her bird article in last Sunday's Parade. There are so many of us bird lovers out there. I know I do not take advantage of seeing and searching for the many different birds that are still in my neck of the woods. But, if one more of my friends tell me a Painted Bunting visited their feeder.....!!! I may have had a quick sighting of one last spring, but not the many that some of my friends get year after year. I must make my yard more inviting for them.
I failed to mention that I read Margaret's book on my NookColor. If you have one, I encourage you to download it there as there are beautiful bonus pictures that the regular book does not have. You will love them as much as I did, I know. (I believe it is on the iPad version as well.)
"Did you ever just want to walk away?" asks Margaret Roach in her newest book.
