It is early spring and garden shop owner, Joan Louen, is expecting another robust season. Flats of flowers, herbs and vegetables, all nurtured from seed, are ready for sale.  But what she hasn’t prepared for, is watching her teenage son struggle with his first love. Will he learn that beauty is no substitute for true love?

Nor did she anticipate the local beekeeper’s stunning loss of bees. And when called upon to help find a solution, she jumps at the chance, believing that her years of horticulture work and study have prepared her for the challenge.  But is a solution even possible, or will more mysteries unravel?

Living History Farm: Pesticide Research

While writing When Flowers Weep, I performed a significant amount of research on colony collapse disorder as well as the history of pesticides and how we came to use them.  Google and Wiki’s were of course instrumental, but I found this site particular interesting. It helped me become more empathic and added polish to my writing of story.

For anyone interested in how we came to use pesticides, I highly encourage the read.
