Hour 19

Well I have read another 7 chapters of  "Waking Up in Eden" and just love it.  A whole chapter devoted to Isabella Bird (is she following me everywhere?) and a delightful account of renovating an old plantation cottage while uncovering the delights of Hawaiian botany.  Having worked for while at the Missouri Botanical Garden I am fascinated with her accounts of attempts to save native species of plants, particularly the Brighamia. All in all, quite a satisfying read especially if you are interested in middle-aged single women spreading their wings just a little.

must be time for tea
