Book Reviews

HI Guys,

Some of you may have noticed the review for my book, Journal of an Irish Garden, in the April Irish Garden magazine on page 73. Thank you, Mary Davies. I hope it will generate lots of interest.

The reason why I am writing this message is to ask anyone who has already read my book and liked it to consider writing a review on lulu.com. It need only be a few words.
There are currently just two reviews there, which looks a bit sad. The first is thanks to Fran, who is always so supportive. Many thanks for your continued support.

And you can write a review or buy the book from this link...

The weather has just been gloriously glorious. And we have deserved it after such a soggy winter. I took advantage of it my visiting some gardens in UK. What a complete thrill to enjoy winter gardens in full sun! As the rain is back today maybe some of you will be indoors and looking for something to watch...
