My newly planted hydrangeas are finally blooming. Next year this time, I’m hoping to have a full on bush of these beauties. In the meanwhile, my next door neighbors have been so kind as to let me snip a few from their yard. I’d keep a vase of hydrangeas on the breakfast table all summer Read More
I can think of many reasons, but The Art of Pesto by Kinfolk should give you a gentle and gracious nudge. Enjoy!
So that I can have the privilege of throwing on my wellies, running out into the rain and snipping a few of these beauties. Nothing like it.
Well, not really, but I am making plans for spring planting. How about you?
I don’t believe that lasting happiness is typically achieved through stuff like a job promotion, a new home or adopting a puppy, although there’s no doubt that such happenings deliver a jolt.

Gardening is a labor of love. Many a morning I wake up with sore and aching muscles after toiling away in the dirt the day before. Then there are the days when I am white-hot angry because a chipmunk or squirrel wreaked havoc on my poor garden. And I can’t even begin to tell you Read More
I spent a good chunk of last weekend playing in dirt. Despite the 90 plus degree weather, I decided to expand my little Kitchen Garden. It was a lot of work, but I am literally seeing the fruits of my labor since planting just a few days ago.
I often dream of a fictional land. Actually it’s a tiny island. For centuries the inhabitants of the island have lived what seems to me as perfectly as one can. Spring is nothing short of heaven. Summer sizzles, but makes it all the more delightful to wile away the days in the cool beach waters. Read More
It’s on like popcorn! With help from Honey, my 9-year old (her little sis, Cricket didn’t want to get her hands dirty), my kitchen garden is off to a great start. All of my herbs are potted and looking mighty nice. In a couple of weeks they’ll be in good shape to begin snip-snipping. Most Read More
