April is N'tl Lawn & Gardening Month (Tuesday's Truths WK 78)


Welcome to my seventy-eighth "segment" of my Tuesday's Truths series which happens to coincide with the first Tuesday in the month of April. In the United States of America, this month is considered to be National Gardening and Lawn Month.

gardening related web-page states "Every April communities, organizations, and individuals nationwide celebrate gardening during National Garden Month. Gardeners know, and research confirms, that nurturing plants is good for us: attitudes toward health and nutrition improve, kids perform better at school, and community spirit grows. Join the celebration and help to make America a greener, healthier, more livable place!"

Gardeners are not the only ones who improve the quality of their lives by spending time in their garden. Wild birds, such as Cam the cardinal who visits my rooftop garden also know the benefits of "hanging out" in a garden. 

She shares many of the benefits re spending time in a garden throughout both volumes of her book series, Words In Our Beak. (their covers can be seen in the image atop this entry). 

Volume two is relatively new to the market, and while it is a book that people will enjoy at anytime, I think that National Lawn and Garden Month is a perfect time to read it.

This is because (as the press release* states) in volume two, "... Cam relates how structural renovations and two major weather storms bring change to the urban garden ecosystem she calls home and how those changes affect both the plantings that give it life and the birds who visit it." 


*This press release was created by Chris Deatherage. As you may recall (from previous posts), he is the one that formatted and edited both versions of Words In Our Beak. And you may also recall that Chris designed my web-site He has updated the site with great information re the book series and I highly recommend that you take a look at it.


The digital versions of Volume One within the Words In Our Beak book series that are mentioned in this entry may only remain available for a limited time, but hardcover versions of Volume One, Two and Three can now be found wherever books are sold.


Please click here to go to my blog post that provides details as to where you can get these books. Additionally, I have rendered some images from these books into other formats and they are available via Fine Art America (FAA). Some of my other photographs (Black & White CollectionKaleidoscopic Images and the famous Mandarin duck who visited NYC) can also be found on my FAA pages.


When the third volume of the hard-cover version of Words In Our Beak was released, I withdrew from promoting my former versions of Words In Our Beak. 

The very first one is an iBook and went into Apple's book store in 2015.

This was followed by an ePub version...

... that is available on Amazon and was also published in 2015.

Subsequently, Words In Our Beak's digital versions were published as a soft-cover book (with slight variations) by MagCloud in 2017.

Its press release can be read by clicking here.  

Now with the release of BIRD TALES....

... I've been advised to make mention of my early versions of volume one of Words In Our Beak, they do vary ever so slightly in content from the hard-cover version of volume one.

As of this addendum, I do not intend to create digital or soft-cover versions of Words In Our Beak Volume Two or Words In Our Beak Volume Three.
