Why Read a Fiction Series on Gardening?

2 Book Reviews & A Camping Trip

My husband and I went camping last week for three nights. It wasn’t easy, because this is the first time he’s needed to be on oxygen. It was a forest service campground without electricity. We camp with a tiny teardrop trailer which is one step above a tent. Despite the extra prep, I ended up […]
