July is brutal in North Carolina.
I have been out today working on two different posts.
I just can’t stand the thought of another shower before my afternoon appointment.
So I plan to look over a new book I discovered via my Nook.
I check out samples of e-books. If I like them, I then order the paper version.
My latest gardening book is A Gardener’s Latin by Richard Bird.
I have learned a lot of Latin over the years as a scientist, but this one breaks it down for gardeners.
This is a lovely book that is hardback and a good size for carrying around.
It is sectioned by groupings such as prefixes and suffixes, places, textures, habitats, colors, shapes…
Did you know that roseus, ruber, rubens, rufus, russatus and sanguineus all refer to various shades of red?
The illustrations on each page are colorful and delightful.
I plan to take this little treasure with me to my appointment.
No use sitting around looking at old magazines.
Read with the FLOWER.
