Part of my @BetterWorldBooks arrived yesterday. Some of the books about the pollinators are going into a lending library that I curate for the garden I work in. And the other are for serious study and fun.

Has anyone here read the “Amplified Bible”. I have never worked with it and a reading program that I am starting next year uses that translation. What are your thoughts on it.

Rainbow in the Mist | Phyllis A. Whitney
post image

Getting ready for 2020 The Year of Phyllis A. Whitney. I found these today at my friend Laura‘s book shop. Whic is The Bookshelf in Holt, Michigan. The Rendell book was an added surprise. Eventually I will make my way through her back catalogue. Other authors I plant on tackling are Victoria Holt, and Mary Stewart.

DrexEdit Terrific goals! Whitney, Holt, and Stewart are all authors I'm not familiar with, but will now have to give them a try. Mary Stewart looks very intriguing! 🙂 2w
LauraBrook Love these goals! I‘ve only read a couple by Holt, and the others are on my list. And I just found out about a Whitney I‘d never heard of before thanks to Booktube. Looks like it could be a good one. 2w

I was at Ollie‘s today getting things for family and friends. And I found these for me. Alas the Ollie stick has marred the one book jacket. So I am leaving it to prevent any further damage.

I‘m pooped. It was a busy afternoon harvesting mint and digging up sunflower roots. And when I went to the back gardens we still had bees flying around trying to get the last of the pollen before the flowers give up the ghost for the season.

Freespirit I am making bird and bee baths in my garden and trying to keep flowering plants alive for them during this horrible drought.❤️🐝🌻 3w
quirkyreader @Freespirit Something that will also help with the plants is to fill up beer or glass bottles with water, up end them and place them around the garden plots. It provides much needed moisture . (edited) 3w

As I‘m sure some of you have deducted that I am involved with pollinator preservation, and that guess is right.🐝🦋

I am always on the lookout for books that will help people just getting involved in it.
