I'm spending time finishing up Sarah Dunant's In the Company of the Courtesan, riveting, great writing. Now I want to read everything she's written!
Our new deck and pergola are finished, and I can't believe how much better the entire back of our house looks. I put together a pot of flowers especially to attract hummingbirds from P. Allen Smith's Container Gardens, which I got out of the library. It was very helpful to have this as a guide, as I'm more at home with perennials and herbs that with big, showy annuals. I've also got parsley, basil, cilantro, and an heirloom pepper, Fish Hot Pepper, which I've never seen before, so I hope it produces!
L is being industrious and working as a volunteer at the library; I hope she picks up a few more hours during summer vacation, which begins in two weeks. My editing project starts in at the end of next week, so we will all be busy.
