Celebrate Spring with Flower-Inspired Novels
After what felt like the longest winter, spring has finally sprung! I'm in Ohio and it was still snowy and cold here until mid-April. UGH. But few things thawed my winter chill like seeing the two dogwood trees in our yard bloom. After a good spring rain, the petals fall and the yard looks like a magical wonderland.
And this weekend we planted our yard full of vegetables and herbs––peas, beans, onions, cabbage, kale, zucchini, cauliflower, carrots, radishes, beets, spinach, lettuce, collards, peppers, okra, tomatoes, cucumbers, chickory, oregano, cilantro, sage, parsley, dill, and hops. But don't worry, all that work didn't take me away from my books for long because gardening is an ideal time to listen to an audiobook. (If you're curious about my gardening updates, as well as book photos, check out my Instagram @offthebeatenshelf.)
Spring has got me thinking about flowers, which means I'm also thinking about flower-inspired novels! The good folks at FTD let me borrow this gorgeous infographic they made to share with y'all.
Bring on the florals! Cheers to the season of audiobook gardening, reading on a blanket in the grass, and reading by a body of water (even if it's just a pool).
