I don't just read....

Last week the area where I live was flooded badly, freeways closed, schools and others closed and you can't find a mop anywhere.  My damage was minimal but I feel so badly for others who have lost so much.

One of my friends basement has not flooded in 52 years and guess what?  There is a dumpster outside their house with all their basement treasures.  Up and down the streets there are piles of bags and furniture waiting to be picked up. 

My garden is muddy but the tulips are loving it so one day I had to read...The Glovemaker and I really liked it.  Check it out on Goodreads to see more details.  Utah territory, 1888, Mormon history, and set in a tiny town called Junction.  Today, its orchards are part of Capitol Reef National Park in Utah.

The author notes are really interesting and I wish I had read them before starting the book.

Now I have to catch up with blogger posts and your news.

New Fiction

This is a new book you might like.  It is a little "romancy" for me, but very sweet.  She is 96 and using a computer to write her memories and skype, but it's fiction so.....

What I bought at the craft fair

This is a ROCK! Painted by Michelle Maddox.  He is just a small one about 8 inches, but she has all types of animals and all sizes, sells at D & L Garden Center also.  I passed on the snakes but fell in love with the kitty.  I think she is extremely talented.

Making a "dirt bag".

 Pick up some old nylons at the thrift store....
 Tie a knot in one end
 Stuff with ever how much potting mix you want the bag to be.... tie the other end
try to have a stem on the plant ...I trimmed this one off some.  Just an inch is best.
Poke a hole in the bag with a pencil or toothpick and insert your plant and water.  You could add as many plants as you want to cover the entire bag.  Rachel at Graye's Greenhouse said to set it aside and forget it while it sets roots.  The ones we made at the class were so pretty, she had flats of tiny plants of various succulents for us to choose from.  It was a fun day.  And not rocket science.

PJ's Plant Poke

What's in the picture...PJ's darling little plant poke.  Had to show it off somehow so I covered a little can with jute and lace, made a nylon sock ball to hold the dirt for the plant (that came from my yard).
We learned how to make the nylon "dirt bags" when we went to the class at Graye's Greenhouse.

What do you think ladies?  Hope your day is the best!
