The 1st Ladies Detective agency HBO series!! And Spring!!!

Did you watch the first pilot episode of the Alexander Mc Call Smith series called The 1st Ladies Detective Agency books- they have made a series of these wonderful books set in Africa (with a woman of traditional build) as the main character. This was a great reading experience and think it will be a geat HBO experience in film. Try to watch it whether you have read the books or not. It promises to be one of the year's best series. Join me in watching it. This author has other series books also that are very entertaining.
On to another subject, I saw in the latest Better Homes magazine dyed empty eggs that have been opened with a little cap and used to plant tiny plants in in an egg carton, what a sweet surprise for Easter and then Spring. Tiny little succulents in a colored egg shell peeking out from a tiny clay pot. Don't you love Spring? The sweet smell of fresh air and little shoots peeking from the ground. What is better , the air so crisp and clean you could almost taste it and the warmth of the sun after a cold winter.
Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer. ~Geoffrey B. Charlesworth

I love the idea with the egg shells! What a great way to start plants. And the egg shells are great fertilizer for the plants.

I've read all of the books in "The #1 Ladies Detective Agency" and am thrilled to discover they've made it into a series.

I had to laugh at your comment about Oprah. I feel exactly the same way about her hair. I'm glad I found your beautiful blog. It's very inspiring!!

In the magazine they put those in an egg carton. Sooo cute!! The second installment of the series is on right now on demand on Charter. HBO, It is so good and the characters match what I thought they were almost exactly. love this and he has 2 other series books too. Wouldn't you think Oprah would be embarrassed after all her talking about Now she knows the reason she was fat and "Get the connection" OMG I would think she would be hanging her head, not a crime to put the weight back, the crime is telling the world she has the secret. The hair is another story. Glad you liked the blog.
