Linking up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and It's Monday! What are You Reading? hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. In Sheila's absence, share your Monday post on twitter #IMWAYR.
A very productive week, more cooking and gardening. My annuals are now all planted, petunias, daisies, violas and I've topped up the herb garden and added garlic and leek. Our lime tree has always done brilliantly in a pot, it produces great crops of lime almost all year round. So, on the weekend we spent time wandering at a plant nursery that specialises in dwarf/container fruit trees and we now have a blood orange and blueberry. Quite the little orchard going ... can't wait for fruit. I think a lemon will be next, just not sure whether to go with Eureka lemon or a Meyer lemon ... advice anyone?
For all you GoT fans, have you seen the clip of Jon Snow singing Wildling for Ygritte ... loved it!

THE CONFECTIONER'S TALE by Laura Madeleine ~ I enjoyed this one although it did have a few issues.
ROSE UNDER FIRE by Elizabeth Wein (Code Name Verity #2) ~ audiobook. Very emotional.
