I saw this awesome gardening idea on Amazin Things, and I think I am going to try it out today. Instead of starting seeds in the trays, you put them in ice cream cones and then plant them directly in the ground when they are ready. I think with all the watering you need to do they won’t look half as cute as they do in this picture, but it’s worth a shot!

What evil and good will the archeologist find in the past of the small town? Dr. Frank Light, archaeologist, is vastly annoyed. He’s settled into a plush life – cushy department-head job at a university, suave girlfriend, book in the works. Now he’s been ordered into the sludgy, back-water marshes of Maryland to fend off hordes of mosquitoes, all because of an inconsequential find at a bridge construction site. Maggie, the outspoken state archaeologist working the dig, insists the shipwreck has historical significance. Pastor Allingham is even more vehement, insisting the decaying timbers hide a rumored, long-lost slave graveyard.

Real estate tycoon Jake Terment is furious that his construction project is held up by the growing concerns of Frank and his team. Jake cranks up the pressure for a quick resolution. Others passionately feel the archaeology project should either come to a crashing halt or press full speed ahead. An eclectic group of butterfly fanatics, a mysterious waterman of Mexican heritage, a curvaceous movie star, and even ghosts make their presence known.

When several attempts are made on the team members’ lives, Frank draws on lessons from his Vietnam vet past. He has to decide on which side of this battle to stake his claim – and if he is ready to risk his life again for his beliefs.

The River Sunday Romance Mystery Series can be read in any order.

The jungle holds more than refuge. Within its verdant foliage lurks a danger even a wily Pruxnæ isn’t prepared for, forcing Alna and Gared to face the truth lying within their hearts before the jungle destroys them both.

Brought up in a sleepy Lincolnshire village by unassuming parents, Ed Sullivan has, since the age of eleven, been on a mission to live the fullest and most successful life he can.

Now 40, creative director at a renowned London ad agency and married with two young children, life has moved on and become a little too predictable for Ed’s liking. Bored, restless and starting to doubt his achievements, he finds himself wondering what his old school friends are up to now…

It’s not long before Ed sets off to Lincolnshire to meet a group of old classmates whom he hasn’t seen in almost 25 years. But the evening turns out to be more of a distraction than he’d intended, when one of his old friends makes a revelation that turns his world upside down.
