A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway

Vita's picture

I’ve always liked Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast.  Set in 1920’s Paris the cast of real life characters, Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald are living fab lives with the Hemingways’.  Their enchanted lifestyle was easily realized on $5.00 a day; enjoying fishing trips to Spain, long weekends skiing in the Alps, and wonderful evenings of incredible storytelling while relishing exquisite food and alcohol.  Hemingway’s lyrical words paint a beautiful and romantic way of life.   

Grab a bottle of champagne, good cheese plus fresh bread and head to your favorite reading spot, enjoy!

Pollinator Friendly Gardening by Rhonda Fleming Hayes

Hari's picture

The severe decline in the populations of two pollinators, Monarch butterflies and honey bees, has brought them to the forefront of media and public attention. Most of the other pollinators, however, continue to toil away with little to no notice or respect. To change people’s mindset about “bugs,” Hayes discusses the primary pollinators from honey and native bees to butterflies, moths, flies, wasps and beetles to non-insect pollinators—birds and bats. Topics covered include using native versus “alien” plants and nativars (cultivars of native plants), enhancing pollinator habitats, sustaining butterflies with larval host plants, allowing nesting sites for bees, providing liquids and shelter, and protecting pollinators while controlling pests. For inspiration and practical know-how from an easy-to-understand, non-judgmental source, this book is an excellent resource.
