A couple of my books that I am really enjoying…

I received my book “An Island Garden” by Celia Thaxter for my birthday last summer. I also received  the “New England Butt’ry Shelf Almanac” by Mary Mason Campbell which was illustrated by Tasha Tudor, as a Christmas gift. I’m just now finding or making the time to really savor every word and drink in every illustration …… Now let me share a little with you…..

One can express almost any sentiment through a gift of roses, depending on the color or kind, but roses generally have a connotation of love. ~ “The New England Butt’ry Shelf Almanac”

and a sweet drawing by Tasha Tudor.
