Something that's not a meme--This is book 2 in a series about an archeologist in the UK and the mysteries she helps to solve. I had read book 1 a year or so ago and enjoyed it. I guess I did not realize it was part of a series. I really enjoyed this one (listened on Audible), and as I love a good mystery series, I will keep going. 4+/5 stars.
I took a zoom class on growing dahlias. Two years ago, Mark and I threw a bunch of unidentified tubers into the ground and ended up with some beautiful flowers. Last summer, after spending much time researching and carefully planting our dahlia bed, we got one tiny flower. In retrospect, we now know that our biggest error was planting too late (May 1 instead of some time in March), so our plants did not have time to get established before the temps got higher than 90 degrees. That, and we should have used shade cloth to shelter them from the many 100+ days we had last summer. This class (by Garden Bee) was packed with helpful information. Highly recommended. We have ordered all new tubers and are going to start afresh. Fingers crossed.
Mark and I don't really celebrate Valentine's Day, although we have a tradition of going out for hamburgers in a nearby town and bring a little candle along for ambience. But if Mark were to ask what I wanted, this pretty much covers it.
