Garden Walk With Friends Book Hop Style

It is such a pleasant day out.
I could no longer stand the stuffy manner of the sitting room.
Nor could I spend another minute in my deep dark Laboratory! 
A lady does have to get about making appearances ever so often.
I have my pale blue parasol and a book in my arms.

Would you like to take a stroll with me through the gardens?
You will make the my day ever so pleasing.
They are so beautiful this time of the year.
The colors and sights will delight your senses.

Beaulieu Gardens, UK

What are you currently reading? Basically, what book is that?

As of late, I have been devouring Beautiful Darkness the second book of the Caster Chronicles!  It is one of the best YA series that I have read this year.

I must mention that if you are not already signed up for the Blog Hop and Follow Friday I insist that you

It has been a Wonderful Pleasure strolling through the garden with others who also enjoy books as much as I do.
Please do stop by anytime & I will make sure to make an appearance on your blogs as well.
