The photo above is an example of living landscaping from the Wildlife Trust in the United Kingdom. If gardening is your interest you will thoroughly enjoy our new book, “The living landscape: designing for beauty and  biodiversity in the home garden”. It’s a large tome with many glorious garden pictures to savor. Also new this week are thrillers from Douglas Preston, C.J. Box and Amanda Williams. If your holiday entertainment leans toward a bit of television viewing we have several new DVDs here at the library, including two master works from Ken Burns.  Here is a list of our latest arrivals.
