FOTESS NOV. SWAP - "A Garden and a Library"

“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”

In order to participate you must be a member of FOTESS (Friend of the Earth Simple Swaps). If you might like to join the group, you are welcome to check with me about membership.

A simple but fun swap for this month. It's a time to be thankful and we have so much to be thankful for and this month will focus on our gardens and books about gardens. Great games to check out so watch as they are posted. The swap part will be simply to send a card to one assigned person with the theme of Thanksgiving or simply thankfulness. The card can be bought or handmade.

Join Cicero and others (book lovers of all kinds, gardeners, philosophers) for our November FOTESS swap. This only involves one card so let someone in the group enjoy some personal mail in her mailbox. Post here that you want to participate by Nov. 8. Please mail by Nov. 18 and post when you mail and when you receive. (Hoping the cards will arrive in time for Thanksgiving.)

Begin to score some points even now. For the remainder of the month, suggest books that you really enjoyed or got you pondering about life - these must include a garden. Add the author in case someone else might enjoy it. Tell us about gardening information books, the good and the bad in terms of if it was helpful. Any time a garden book is mentioned in a post, you get 1 point. However, look over the ones that have already been posted since it will only count for the first person who posts that book. You are, however, encouraged to comment on the book if you've read it.

Also planned are a photo scavenger hunt (autumn style) and a game where you match clues and fill in the blanks (Wheel of Fortune style). Posting more about them soon!
