Blooming Beautiful

This is an interactive BookMooch Journal, an ‘altered book’ reusing an unused 1982 flower diary. The diary has double pages with illustrations on backing pages, one of each pair alternating left and right hand. I suggest contributions are added randomly where they seem most appropriate and can take any form that fits the title, just don’t alter anyone else’s contribution and relist as soon as possible (preferably within a fortnight). If you can send jpegs for uploading to the journal files please do, it means those who have mooched earlier can check out its progress and additions.

Nature will have her course

This is an interactive BM journal, an ‘altered book’ having started life as an unused 1995 Amateur Gardening diary. It has a colour photo for each month with a page opposite each picture of description or explanation by a gardening expert, and a section of 6 pages of month by month hints at the end. The rest is available for use as a celebration of all things ‘green’ and gardenish by participating BookMoochers.

Please relist within 2 weeks of receipt if possible and do not alter anyone else’s contributions. Beyond that I am happy for it to be filled in in random order wherever you wish to add your contribution, using as few or many pages as you wish. If you wish to upload images of the completed pages to BMJournals files that would be great.
