Happy Black Friday!

Ominous skies are a given during our seemingly endless rainy season, which made me appreciate these bright red roses even more. I noticed them in the parking lot of my favorite grocery store the other day. Moments after I got back into my car, the […]


Happy Friday from my Fall Garden!

It’s been raining here non-stop for a day and a half. That has left the air smelling crisp and clean. The leaves are starting to turn color every where you look! Hopefully we’ll get a little sunshine next week so that I can go on […]


Happy Friday!

The last two mornings had a definite chill in the air. Fall is arriving! There’s even rain in the forecast. Much of my garden looks heat stressed, despite watering. This summer’s been extremely hot and dry for this area. Rain will be good, especially for […]

Happy Friday!

The sun finally came out yesterday, and it felt heavenly! I sat outside for a while soaking it all in. The atmosphere was buzzing with spring fever all around me. There were the usual birds visiting our yard in search of some seeds, a lone chipmunk […]


Happy Friday!

As far as I am concerned, spring might as well make an early appearance around here. We had mountains of snow, some ice and freezing rain, the coldest temperatures in a decade and lots and lots of rain. Needless to say, I am ready for spring! May […]
