5.4 -- In the Conservatory
A conservatory can also be called a sunroom or solarium. In Florida, we just call them Florida rooms. Florida rooms are lined with windows. The idea is to enjoy the plant life outside without having to deal with the weather (or the bugs!). Read a book with plants or plant parts (flowers, fruit, leaves, etc) on the cover. Examples:
The English Garden by Ursula Buchan Traveling With Pomegranates A Mother-Daughter Story by Sue Monk Kidd Crazy On You by Rachel Gibson To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee The Cider House Rules by John Irving Colonization (Paradise Reclaimed, #1) by Aubrie Dionne

As with all tasks that require an element to be found on the cover, remember to include the cover when you claim task 5.4 in the completed task thread.

For more information about what is required when posting completed tasks see: Posting Requirements.

Leaves work. I can't tell that they're leaves from the picture, but if they look like leaves on the actual book it'll work.

Wheat, corn, or grass are all plants. So no matter what that green stuff is, it works!

Dee (austhokie) | 7512 comments kristie - Guests on Earth by Lee Smith - in the lower right, there looks to be a branch with a flower - will it work? I can't get enough resolution on the rest of the cover (even looking at it to see if they are plants, or the horizon)

That looks like a flower. The butterfly's sitting on one, too. It looks like forest covered mountains in the background. Lots of plants! You're good to go.

Yep, looks like a tree to me. Just point it out when you claim points so Sandy doesn't have to search for it.

Yep, still a plant. That will work. Although, it would help if you point out the grass and say that the book was approved in the help thread when you post the completed task. That way Sandy isn't searching for a green plant. ;-)

Is this the book you're asking about? (That picture was really, really tiny ◕‿◕) The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert

If this is the book then, yes, it works for this task. It doesn't matter what the topic of the book is, just that it has plants on the cover.
