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”

What’s Emerging in the May Garden?

I’m glad you asked! Let’s start with the herbs. My herbs are mostly decorative, though I could use them for cooking if I only remembered. First up are the chives. It won’t be long before the buds open and attract bees into their blossoms.… Continue Reading “What’s Emerging in the May Garden?”

Fire King, Cats, and a River!

What do these disparate things have in common? Jade green, of course! I’ll start with Jadeite Fire King – have you heard of it? It’s collectible glassware from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. My first piece was a classic coffee mug which friends remembered… Continue Reading “Fire King, Cats, and a River!”

Fresh as a Bird on the First Day of Spring!
