Getting Cozy: May Flowers

It's May. Time to complete the old adage: "April showers bring May Flowers." It is also National Gardening for Wildlife Month. So this month, I'm highlighting some of my favorite gardening cozy mysteries.

Gardening Cozy Mysteries

This list of cozy mysteries feature a wide-range of gardeners: from medieval monks and botany professors to amateur gardeners and florists.

If you have to pick just one, I highly recommend Susan Wittig Albert's China Bayles Herbal Mystery Series. China abandoned her career as a lawyer to buy an herb shop, Thyme and Seasons, in Pecan Springs, Texas. Each of her mysteries has a signature herb that is connected to a major theme, and each is liberally sprinkled with information on growing and using herbs. The most recent book in the series is Queen Anne's Lace, and if you love them as much as I do, you can always sign up for the hold list for the next book in the series

And of course, you must check out Rosemary & Thyme—Glorious gardens and classic whodunits combine in this British series seen on public television.
