Spell the Month in Books – MAY #SpellTheMonthInBooks #BookRecommendations

I first saw this on Nicki’s Secret Library Blog and Carla’s Love to Read, but it originated from Jana at ‘Reviews from the Stacks‘.

Every month I will spell the month in books that I have already read, linking back to my reviews of the title. (Initial articles – The, A, An – will not be taken into account)


Mile Marker 139” by Cynthia Hilston


All Things Cease to Appear” by Elizabeth Brundage


The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman


That was fun!

I’m always searching for ways to share my book recommendations.

We are currently under lockdown where I live, so all non-essential stores, businesses and services are closed.  Also, we are encouraged to stay in our own communities. Mother Nature has deemed that ‘spring has sprung‘ so my husband and I went for a walk in beautiful downtown Dartmouth, Nova Scotia where we live.

Here are a few photos of the Cancer Survivor’s Daffodil Garden, where the daffodils are at their absolute best. These photos were taken last Thursday, April 29th. As you can see, there are not many people around – normally this park would be much more populated. You can’t read the inscriptions on the benches from these photos, but they are all positive cancer phrases. Two of which are: “The beauty of life after cancer is worth fighting for“, and “A scar is a badge of your strength“.

Cancer Survivors Daffodil Garden

As you can see from this photo taken earlier this year, the path in the center of the park is in the shape of a ‘cancer awareness’ ribbon.

Thanks for visiting. ♥

    So, I wasn’t getting emails about your posts Lynne. I have missed them all in the month of May. I will be catching up over the next few days. We are also in lockdown, here in Ontario, but things are easing a bit. I can start golfing and parks are open, but schools, hair salons, restaurants (take out only), non-essential items and stores are all still closed. I love that daffodil park. I would love to see something like that here.

    • Yes Carla, lockdown life sure is discouraging. My grandson’s 2nd birthday was yesterday and I haven’t been able to give him a cuddle since March.
      Also, both my husband and I are desperate for haircuts. We both resemble shaggy grey sheepdogs.

        I got a haircut in February, just before our latest lockdown, but I definitely need another. Because I live alone, I get to associate with one other household and it is my son’s family. That works well because I do online learning with my granddaughter. We can now have up to five people outdoors, so once the weather warms back up, I can have friends over for a swim, a drink and conversation. Woo Hoo!
