Xeria E-Zine August 2018

The two sounds l listen for as the dog days of summer arrive are the creaking of Pacific Tree Frogs (which you can prime by making a creaking sound of your own) and the almost deafening shrilling of crickets in the sandy banks all around my garden.

Many lizards and snakes make their homes close by, but it's the tree frogs who steal my heart.  They have almost comical expressions on their faces, and they do so much good in the garden.  They eat their weight in insects over the course of the summer.

I've been lucky enough to be added to the list of reviewers by Tuttle Publishing. 

Every time they release a new title, I get an email from them asking if I would like to write a review, in exchange for a copy of the book. 

So far, all the books I've received from them have added to my knowledge of many interesting facets of horticulture, like miniature terrariums, tiny moss gardens, and the latest one, all about some unique little succulent plantings.
