WHEN WE LAST LEFT OFF

WHEN WE LAST LEFT OFF

 So…when we last left the garlic it was was drying like this…and I was impatiently threatening to braid them. After all, how hard can it be? I said that last year too. But I waited too long then and the stalks were hard and dry so braiding wouldn’t work. My attempt failed…see here.  Every season […]

A WALK AROUND THE GARDEN

A WALK AROUND THE GARDEN

Seems that time is standing still these days in my lil ol’ garden.  Also seems that I’ve said that before.  Sorry. This year isn’t quite the same as previous years and I can’t quite figure it out.  I’ll blame it on the weather.  Cold/hot/cold/hot. For starters we’ve had a horrendous week of smoke filled sky […]

THE GARDEN GATE

THE GARDEN GATE

Last winter I was dreaming of garden gates…like this one…  or this one…  or even this one. I just wanted something simple to show the garden entrance.

GARDEN TOUR IN HOPE, IDAHO

GARDEN TOUR IN HOPE, IDAHO

Hey gardenistas!  Are you getting back into the swing of things after a long holiday weekend?  Me neither. Which is one reason why I dragged Mr. Denim on a garden tour on Sunday.
