Trailer for sale or rent.

This fun birdhouse has been hanging around our garden for a few years now. It was a birthday gift, and is one of my favorite things in our garden.

Creating a garden is about so much more than just growing flowers or food. It's about creating a space to relax, smile, have fun, and enjoy the beauty around you.

Do you have a favorite thing in your garden? What is it?

June Goons!

My husband and I both celebrate our birthdays in the month of June. Luckily, there are quiet a few fabulous cupcake shops in our city! For my husband's birthday we got an assortment of Coconut, Red Velvet, and Pink Lemonade.

My favorite is the coconut, but they were all amazing. Yes, that's 6 cupcakes for 2 people, but look at them! How could we resist?

Many of my friends also celebrate their birthdays in June. It's a good month to be born!

Welcome Summer

Summertime has arrived in our part of the world. The spring flowers are all but gone, vegetables have been planted, and our city has celebrated Summerfest.

There will be more time spent outside than in, and hopefully some much needed home projects will start to take shape. We need a new roof before the weather turns cold again and the snow returns. We have big garden dreams as well.

Part of me thinks we will be lucky to get anything done at all. There is just something about summer, all you want to do is play outside and relax in the hammock.

Busy Bee in the Garden

It's my favorite time of year. And boy have we been busy getting the garden ready for planting.

The above plant is a Ghost Pepper, one of the hottest peppers you can eat. It has been growing inside for over a year, and finally I felt like it was big enough to harden off into the garden. It didn't enjoy the process much, and no longer looks as full and green as it did in this photo. However, if all goes well, we will have some scary peppers at the end of the season.

So much to do still.
