It's release week for Restoring Fairhaven, book six in the Independence Islands Series. To celebrate with author, Carolyn Miller, we thought we'd have a garden party, showing off our own gardens, sharing gardening tips and more. Today, I'll be sharing a little about low maintenance gardening with children. Look at my pictures and post below. Also, don't forget to read more about Restoring Fairhaven and sign up for the giveaway! :)
Around my house, we have lots going on all time. When I'm not busy writing or homeschooling, there is always some project to work on. However, we still love having pretty flowers around our house and my kids love to help plant and water them. For us, the best flowers are perennials or hardy annuals that don't constant maintenance. Today, I'd like to talk about some of my favorite flowers to have in our flowerbeds and planters.
My 3 Favorite Annuals...
Taking on her ailing father’s gardening business on Merriweather Island, Samantha Green only wants to escape her ex and to make her father proud.
But Sam gets more than she bargained for when Greener Gardens accepts the job of restoring the gardens of a reclusive writer, Max Fairhaven, whose historical novels about romance and unrequited love litter bookstore shelves and movie marquees all over the world.
Max much prefers the fictional world to the real, and the gardening girl’s interruptions means he’s driven from his writing cave far too often for his liking.
How’s he supposed to craft stories with her distracting him all the time?
Things change when he learns something of Sam’s family challenges, and his admiration slowly kindles. With his secretary’s goading, he’s forced to confront the past, while facing the fact that he needs to change in order to avoid a lonely future.
Gentle pruning and a whole lot of banter forges a friendship between this not-so-Southern belle landscaper and the half-British author. But is their budding attraction enough to grow into a flourishing happily-ever-after?
Restoring Fairhaven is the final “Merriweather book,” but don’t forget to embark on a tour of the next island in this series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.
The Independence Island Series: beach reads aren’t just for summer anymore.
