My Mother curled up on her lawn in Birmingham, Michigan
when she was about 18 years old.She loved to read.
Having a place to curl up and read a book has become one of the treasures of summer
When I think of summer activities the first one to pop in my mind is reading. Probably this idea was born during an unusually hot summer like the one we have been experiencing lately.
Non-fiction books are my favorite. Within this category my interests run high is many directions. I thought I would recommend a few good summer reads. The following three nature books are diverse starting with the life of an environmentalist, secondly, living with nature, and lastly, gardening with nature. Hopefully you might pencil one on your "to read" list.
