Theme Thursday - TREES (Plants/Greenery )

Theme Thursdays

This is a new meme hosted by kavyen at Reading between Pages.. “Theme Thursdays” will be open from one thursday to the next and anyone can post it. The rules are simple:

* A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
* Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
* Post it and don’t forget to mention the author and the title of the book
* Since we may take a few days to finish a book, this event is open for one whole week

This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

This week’s theme is – TREES (Plants/Greenery )

This week one of the books I'm reading...

His yard showcased some of the crap he had salvaged. Rubber tires filled with dirt and planted with yellow and orange day lilies were scatted around. A four-foot tall plush Bugs Bunny was strapped to the trunk of an African tulip tree. A bald Cabbage Patch Doll in a frilly pink pinafore was impaled upon a metal fence stake at the entrance to the driveway.


  1. This sounds like and interesting and fun book. These memes keep making my TBR list grow and grow.

  2. The yard in your excerpt sounds a lot like some of the yards in the foothill community where I used to live! LOL

    Sounds like a good book!


  3. Hi!
    That sounds interesting. I'll have to check this book out. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  4. I can't decide if the description is amusing or creepy. Sounds like a fun book though.

  5. How I'd love to see that yard! Never heard of an African Tulip Tree so I looked it up. It's a very interesting looking tree! I want me one!
    Here's Mine

  6. That sounds like a garden I'd love to explore. What a fun book - and how about that cover! I love it!

  7. Now that sounds like a very different sort of garden than the usual!
    Fun snippet!

  8. I loved this book! It was such a fun read. I kept laughing at the Hula ladies. I hope you are enjoying it as much as I did.

  9. I'm reading this one too along with other books. I remember this description. Can you imagine???

  10. Cool snippet.. almost realistic. Love the cover, so much of life with the colors.
