Christmas reading

26 December 2009 19:03:43

I received three gardening books.  One is on ideas for small water features, which looks interesting as I have a very small pump somewhere. 

The second one is the Expert Orchid book.  After managing to kill 2 earlier in the year and currently having one, a bit of expertise is required.

The third is the book by Michael Kelly, the founder of GIY Ireland.   It sets out month-by-month what we should be doing with commentary, facts and receipes for the vegetable grown.  I started it last night, while keeping an eye on 'The devil wears Prada'.  Nothing amazing on telly tonight so should get a good bit of it read.

Lots of reading to keep you occupied until the weather picks up, imagine plans will be made from the GIY book and the water features book.
