I've been working on my flower garden, not the real thing, but my Embroidered Flower Garden. Got the Bird Bath done. Good block, turned out really pretty!
Know anything about Gophers? Other then the fact some people think of them as a pest. We have a family of Gophers that live in our barn. Every spring they come out to eat the clover and other grasses in our back field. I learned something new about Gophers. [They climb trees!] Did anyone else know that?
Speaking of books, I am currently reading The Known World by Edward P. Jones. Really great book, it's my Book Club's choice for May. It's set in the days before and after the Civil War. No it's not about the plantations, it's from the slaves point. From slavery to freedom, it follows Henry Townsend, a black farmer and former slave. The author has woven a footnote of history into this book.
review is here.
I'm linking up with Tamar over at Radom-osity for The Good. The Random. and The Fun.
It's Monday, What Are You Reading?
