I suppose with my interest in the environment, I should have read it long ago, this summer I am reading Silent Spring by Rachel Carson. I'm just beginning, so will have more to say about it later. I plan to research a bit about what pesticides are in current use, and how they differ from the DDT-type pesticides. I suspect there is still a big risk to our drinking water quality. Meanwhile, on an entirely different note, I am putting borders on a baby quilt. Soon to attempt machine quilting!
