Mums the Word

I just received two new books tonight thanks to Amazon Prime. Dahlias are my absolute favorite and I’m really intrigued by mums. I was sad to see that Pat Stockett Johnston passed away recently on the National Chrysanthemum Societies Facebook page. She seemed to really love Chrysanthemums! It’s hard to find a lot of resources on mums so this was a great find.   

New Book: The Cook’s Herb Garden

Just picked up The Cook’s Herb Garden by Jeff Cox & Marie-Pierre Moine at Barnes & Noble this weekend. I’m always looking for ways to make the most of my garden and my plan is to grow a lot of herbs this year. Great information and great pictures. I love the oil & herb recipes and the ice cube herb recipes. Definitely a new favorite!

New Book: The Pioneer Woman Cooks

I’m a big fan of “Pioneer Woman” the cooking show and Ree Drummond’s blog. I thought I should probably go ahead and order one of her books so that I start making all of the wonderful meals she makes on TV! I enjoy seeing the photos she takes of her family, her food and her ranch!

Looking forward to diving into my new book “Food From My Frontier!”IMG_0360IMG_0361 IMG_0362

New Book: The Cut Flower Patch

I hit the cut flower book jackpot recently and found this book “The Cut Flower Patch – Grow your own cut flowers all year round” by Louise Curley. Photography by Jason Ingram. Amazing book! The author is from the UK so if you live in the US (like me) the dates and seasons are off a bit. It still has a lot of great information that you can use anywhere.

New Book: Modern Calligraphy

Modern Calligraphy. “Everything you need to know to get started in script calligraphy plus 20 DIY projects for weddings, parties, blogs and more.” By Molly Suber Thorpe. I have only found one calligraphy book that was written about the modern style of calligraphy that I prefer. This is a beautiful book with lots of beautiful images, inspiration and it’s full of things to practice!
