    • This book wad recommended to me as something a bit different from the usual crime fiction.  A best-selling novelist is murdered in his house the night before he emigrates with his wife to Canada. A friend is apprehended as the main suspect.  We follow the  diligent work of the senior detective in unravelling background and possible motives. For about 75% of the book's length I was intrigued but the monologues in the finsl sections started to bore me.
    • I like Spring too but it has been fairly cool up until now, was a bit warmer yesterday and the rains came.  Beneath the hedge there is a lot of water but the temp is going up a bit during the coming week which will be nice.  The Spring bulbs are beginning to show, some hyacinth and crocus and the daffs are showing some green leaves.  Will plant the mini rhodo once the weather clears.
    • We have not had our soil tested either but we do have glorious rhododendrons so we must have acid soil.  It's still trial and error and at the moment the three of us are finding it hard to keep the grass cut.  The daffodils and snow drops come up every year as do the grape hyacinths.  Spring is my favourite time of year.
    • We've never had the soil tested so it's a case of trial and error for us.  Our subdivision was originally an apple orchard so whatever is good for apples should be ok for a lot of different plants.  Never planted azaleas, but they are pretty.
    • Our soil is alkaline, so I don't bother with azaleas and such.  People do grow them here, but the instructions are always to not let the roots touch the native soil.  I can't be bothered.  One of the things that is frustrating to those who want to plant them is that they grow really well JUST east of here.  So it's the soil, not the weather.
