Fragrance in Today’s Garden

It’s been a cold and rainy spring in the Pacific Northwest, but herbs and flowers are blooming in spite of it. I told you recently that my lilac bush – a gift from my mother-in-law – is blooming for the first time after many… Continue Reading “Fragrance in Today’s Garden”

SoCal Floral Beauty and Allen’s Hummingbirds!

When in need of sunshine and a respite from a wintery spring, we Northwesterners head to sunny Southern California! When it’s a road trip in April you may very well spend your first 2 days driving through rain in Washington and Oregon.

Let’s Celebrate Daffodils!

I didn’t make it up to the Skagit Valley this year for peak daffodil season, but I do have many pictures to share from previous years! No law against that, right? Aren’t they beautiful? Yes, but I don’t feel comfortable going up this year,… Continue Reading “Let’s Celebrate Daffodils!”

Next year I shall add to their numbers. Sharing with… Continue Reading “Wax Begonia – Workhorse of the Garden”

What’s In My Garden?

Cats Tiger and Benji believe the backyard is their kingdom and who am I to tell them otherwise? Birds I dream of a world where cats and birds live together in peace. Until then I keep an eye on both. Bees and Herbs I’m… Continue Reading “What’s In My Garden?”

Opening Sunflowers
