Behind The Scenes

I recently visited Xel Ha, a natural ecological aquarium and tropical lagoon.

Located on the Caribbean Coast of the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico.

Xel Ha means ‘birthplace of water’ and we snorkeled and ¬†explored cenotes, caves, and lagoons fed by the ocean.

The day and experience left us in tired and in awe of the sights and beauty of this part of our world.

The end of the day finished with a stop at the plant nursery that supports their mission as an ecological park.

I look forward to sharing more of this special place that included an Apiary that houses melipona Bees, that are stingless.

What Color Is Your Greenhouse?

Not a week goes by without a question about the little greenhouse in my garden.

I thought I would answer a few of the most often asked!

Yes, we built this greenhouse out of nearly all recycled material!

The greenhouse size is 10 x 10.

No, my husband does not have plans for the greenhouse–he does these projects in his head, not even a scribble on paper!

The color is a Dutch Boy Paint color called Pumpkin Stem.

I heat the greenhouse with electric heaters.

Yes, it really works as a greenhouse; growing seedlings each spring!

Can It Be Garden Season Now?

I woke early to work on a project that I have been stalled on.

To get my creativity jump started, I turned to my own Pinterest Board.

I got lost in some of my own images from the garden!

Maybe you would like to get lost too!

 

Winter Has Landed

The garden is covered in the first snowfall,

and we shall rest.

The Blog is also going to take a break for the remainder of the year,

but I will be back in January with a fresh look for my readers.

Happy Holidays to all of my garden friends!
