Happy 4th To Everyone!

What a beautiful day it is here in Colorado. Last night we had 1.2" rain and all the plants are celebrating. I think I'll join them. Took care of my Dad this morning and plan to spend the rest of the day out back in my "Retreat" reading, thinking, planning, eating, etc. Right now I'm reading a Linda Howard ("Ricochet") and I have another to start: "Death in The Orchid Garden" by Ann Ripley. I've not read her books before. I love garden mysteries, so if anyone has some favorite authors please let me know. I'm also reading Carol's Book Club selection, and an interesting publication from Denver Botanic Gardens on native plants. What are you reading?

So... hello to all my garden buddies and thank you for your interest in my blog. I LOVE hearing from all of you. Have a great 4th!

I'm re-reading A Summer in the Garden, but am interesting in finding a good garden mystery to suggestion for th Garden Bloggers' Book Club for August-September. Any suggestions?

Hi Bev, it's raining here as I write. I'm thrilled! And it's about time. We had the same idea today, and I have a good book for you. Check the blog entry I made this evening. Happy 4th to you!

Hope you had a lovely 4th. Here it is pouring with rain for days now, my garden is soaked through and through.

I like to read the garden books of Beverley Nichols. No mysteries but great fun to read.

Carol, I have doing some "sleuthing" and have found some garden mysteries that sound worth looking at:, and Amazon has: Mulch Ado About Nothing (A Jane Jeffry Mystery) by Jill Churchill.

Yolanda, I'll check out book for sure. Thanks!

LostRoses - I left a comment on your blog. Thanks!
