Literary Ladies: The First Gardener

Our Literary Ladies book club at church met in January to discuss the book
We enjoyed this book for many reasons.  One being that it took place in our home state of
Tennessee at the governor's mansion.
So many topics are covered in this book and there are some surprises along the way.
Lessons on forgiveness, love and family are carried throughout the whole book.

We decorated the tables with different flowers mentioned in the book.

The tables were set with blue plates and a packet of seeds was at each place as a reminder of the book.

I led a devotional about planting your spiritual garden in your life for others to see.

For our food, we each brought our favorite Tennessee food.  We never lack for food at these meetings and that continued tonight.

From fried chicken to fresh vegetables . . . 

to grits . . . to white beans and cornbread . . . 

to Coca Cola Cake to Chess Pies . . . 

We are so excited about our new book 1,000 Gifts that we are reading for next time.  This is a major change for the group, but we are excited about the change!
