What to do on a stormy November weekend? I’m going to enjoy reading Marta McDowell‘s book, Beatrix Potter’s Gardening Life: The Plants and Places that Inspired the Classic Children’s Tales. I also downloaded onto my Kindle, Beatrix Potter Complete Tales, because I’ve only read some of her lovely tales, but not all, and I thought it would be fun to read them as I learn about her gardening life. So storm away, November! I’ll be hunkered down with Beatrix Potter and another one of Marta McDowell’s wonderful books about writers and their gardens!
