Made it all the way through John Barr's Grace, second time.
Retreated, mid-Grace, to Judith Larner Lowry's Notes on Natural Design: Ideas for the California Backyard Restoration Gardener and Dan Heims' and Grahame Ware's Heucheras and Heucherellas: Coral Bells and Foamy Bells.
Then after Grace, and loving it all the more because, Andrea Brady's Wildfire: A Verse Essay on Obscurity and Illumination. Relief in "the history of incendiary devices." Somewhat mesmerized by this book. Have gone back to it several times in last few weeks.
