Playing In The Leaves


The weather has been colder and wetter then normal!

Sunshine has been very scarce and I’m behind in the garden chores.

Mother Nature, I need a little cooperation.


Made In The Shade


Where have I been?

I know I’ve been a bad Blogger!

I spent time behind the garden shed, creating a little secret shady garden this summer.


Two sweet Babydoll lambs joined the garden.

Meet Sheffield and Barnsley.


Midnight joined Jimmy in the pasture.

My little petting zoo is complete.

You can also follow along with the garden on my Instagram:




I love Foxgloves!  My zone 4 garden is not always kind to these plants, they often die off from harsh winter temps, but I keep trying.  Even if I can only grow them as annuals, they add such color and charm to the garden.

The Winter always looks so pretty in the garden and I love to grab my camera after a snowfall.  It was a busy year in the garden with most of the work and attention on the new garden pond.  This coming year we look forward to more normal garden task’s and time to sit and enjoy the garden.
