A fun little mystery starring garden designer Paula Halladay, who left a media career to start a gardening business. When she takes on the job of restoring the local rundown manion’s garden , which has been left by the last owner to the town’s Historical Society, she discovers a mummified body of a baby in the back garden.
Turns out there are lots of secrets in this little town, and some fun characters to go along with it. And another body. Well, heck, we can always do with another body, right?
Low key, well-written cozy mystery, no competition for Agatha, so she need not turn over in her grave (see what I did there?). One of those sweet books to read in between War and Peace and À la recherche du temps perdu.
Well, crumb. That was a short review. OK, how about a quote or two:
If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?
And a little piece of trivia for you,
Did you know that Good and Plenty candy is the oldest branded candy in the United States? 1893.
And one more:
Bach Original Flower Remedies. Dr. Edward Bach had been a general practitioner in London in the 1920s.
Hahaha. Well, turns out that Bach Original Flower Remedies are solutions of brandy and water—the water containing extreme dilutions of flower material developed by Edward Bach, an English homeopath, in the 1930s. Bach claimed that dew found on flower petals retain imagined healing properties of that plant. Systematic reviews of clinical trials of Bach flower solutions have found no efficacy beyond a placebo effect.
See ya later. Going to go weed my planters. Hope my cat didn’t poop in them.
