I love to turn on the tiny lights in the bedroom and read for hours, until I get sleepy.
Last night I started a book by Greg Iles that Harper Collins sent last week. I don’t believe I’ve read his books before.
But once I started, I read about 200 pages out of 704. When I picked it up to read, I thought to myself: Well, this one is going to take me awhile.
And: Great, this looks like the last book of a series.
But I was engrossed from the get-go. So I don’t think it will take very long to read it at all.
#1 New York Times Bestselling Author
The endgame is at hand for Penn Cage, his family, and the enemies bent on destroying them
in this revelatory volume in the epic trilogy set in modern-day Natchez, Mississippi—Greg Iles’s epic tale of love and honor, hatred and revenge that explores how the sins of the past continue to haunt the present.
Mississippi Blood is the enthralling conclusion to a breathtaking trilogy seven years in the making–one that has kept readers on the edge of their seats.
With piercing insight, narrative prowess, and a masterful ability to blend history and imagination, New York Times bestselling author Greg Iles illuminates the brutal history of the American South in a highly atmospheric and suspenseful novel that delivers the shocking resolution his fans have eagerly awaited.
I was quickly immersed in the plot, which I promise you doesn’t drag along. But instead moves at great speed. So that you don’t want to put it down.
Just one more chapter, I’d keep telling myself.
I don’t know about you, but my mind is on springtime and my gardens. Which typically happens this time of year. I’m thinking I will plant more seeds this year.
Ah, and the water gardens I created last year! I can’t wait to set them up again.
From last year:
Last year I went around the corner to Ace Hardware and found two galvanized tubs to create my water gardens.
I bought a couple of water fountain kits at Home Depot.
Being in a garden with the sound of water bubbling and bees buzzing and butterflies going from flower to flower. True bliss.
Sitting under the gazebo sipping iced tea while the pupsters snooze in the chairs. Looking out over the patio gardens I have been creating here for three years.
Nothing more satisfying.I have always been a gardener. I will always be a gardener. It is one of the true joys in life, to putter in a garden.
That, my beloved pupsters, books to read, and morning coffee. What more could a person possibly need or want?
Are you planning your gardens yet?
You can garden most anywhere. On an apartment balcony. On a patio, as I do, in containers.
I hope I’ve planted the seed that will become your garden!
Note: Someone asked me how to keep mosquitoes from laying eggs in container water gardens.
Answer: Mosquitoes seek standing water, preferring stagnant conditions. Water that stays fresh and in motion with a pump system doesn’t attract them as a breeding ground.
To save energy, consider using a solar pump. In addition to goldfish, mosquito fish, minnows, koi and guppies eat mosquito larvae.
