A small selection of blogs I have read and I hope you will head over to enjoy in full thanks Sally.
As the weather has perked up a bit, I have started to get the pots sorted for new plants once the garden centre I use opens up. On a lovely sunny day I am very happy pottering for a few hours and love to see the end result. This post from Greta Burroughs writing on In Good Company Linda Lee Greene shares all the is good for us in the garden.
GARDENING: NATURE’S CURE FOR THE BLUES
From Greta Burroughs, Author/Journalist/Ghostwriter
It’s been one of those days. Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong. All you want is for the work day to end allowing you the luxury of escaping to the quiet, calming solitude of your garden. It’s what your mind and body have been craving all day – a chance to soothe away the stress, anger, and frustration that’s been threatening to boil over.
It’s hard to describe the all-encompassing sensation you experience as you inhale the earthy scent of the disturbed earth and feel the grainy texture of the cool soil as it runs through your fingers. It’s so relaxing – sifting through the dirt, being surrounded by lush vegetation, listening to the buzz from insects, all while becoming one with nature. The garden serves as your refuge from the world, a safe place to get rid of all your nagging cares and worries. It’s your happy place.

The next post is both a guest feature and a review by Robbie Cheadle for the book Maledicus by Charles F. French
Guest post: About Maledicus by Charles F. French and a review
Today, I am delighted to welcome author Charles F. French to Roberta Writes with a post about his horror book Maledicus. Maledicus is the first in the The Investigative Paranormal Society series of which the first three books are currently available. Edmund Burke said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”
This issue is one of the central themes of my horror novel Maledicus: The Investigative Paranormal Society Book I and is also one of the main issues that has faced humanity in the last one hundred years. From the consequences of millions slain in the Holocaust to one single person murdered on the streets of New York City while many watched and did nothing, humanity has been confronted with this dilemma. When finding evil threatening others, what do we do? Do we ignore it and pretend that it is not there? Do we call authorities to try to handle the situation and hope they arrive in time? Or do we inject ourselves into situations that for both individuals and nations could be filled with the worst kind of danger?

And now time for an update from Mary Smith who after months of treatment for cancer and its after effects is beginning to feel more like her old self…
MarySmith’sPlace ~ CancerDiary#30 #thinking aloud
Wednesday 07, April: A week and a day since my last update and it has been a strange week of ups and downs and mixed emotions. Missing Sue terribly yet sometimes forgetting she’s not still here. I find myself thinking, “Oh, I must tell Sue …” and then remember. I read her posts being re-blogged on franceandvincent and laugh and cry and relish the sheer joy she felt exploring her native Yorkshire moors.
And today, I’m devastated because while in the garden I lost one of the earrings she gifted me. I’ve searched and the DH has searched but so far no luck in finding it. I’ll keep on looking, though needle in a haystack comes to mind.
When the weather has been good I’ve spent time in the garden, well wrapped up (I don’t cast clouts until May is out and have still been wearing my thermal vest) mainly reading and gazing at the daffodils.
