I love flowers but I never seem to get enough time, so the extent of my gardening consists of someone thrusting bulbs or twigs in my hands and telling me to plant them. I usually get around to it by the time the twig looks completely dead or the bulb appears rotten, so I’m astonished each Spring when new life explodes around me.
I have no idea where these red lilies came from but I adore them. They’re ambitious about their beauty. Each year they strive to outdo the previous years’ blooms and this year they rocked. The center bunch is nearly five feet tall. For frame of reference, that’s a standard height bird bath to the right of them.
As you can see by my photo of Moonie, I’m late putting it up. She thoroughly enjoyed watching the Superbowl from the lush comfort of her pink heart bed with her pink heart pillow, LOL.
I got my first look at the initial mockup of the cover for SHADOWFEVER last week, and can’t wait to share it with you! I adore eBooks—you can’t beat the ease of transport—but there’s a part of me that craves the tactile experience, loves to touch the cover, smell the ink and paper, and see books lined up on my shelves. It makes me feel rich, to have all those stories and possibilities staring back at me. I can’t begin to describe the stunning package Delacorte developed for the conclusion of the FEVER series. I expect to have the final version this week and hope to unveil it next weekend. Yes, it deserves an unveiling! It’s stunning!
Speaking of Shadowfever, it’s coming along. And along and along. Yes, it's long....I'm loving it, and hope you guys do, too!
