My biggest fair yet to date is coming up, and instead of being excited, I’m plain old petrified. Will I have enough stuff? Should I buy another table? Will other potter’s stuff look better than mine? Is my display too ghetto? Should I buy a name-banner for my tent? If I offer five lines of […]

My ideal garden.

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

It recently occurred to me that the random, swampy fenced-in-area in our subdivision could be filled in and made into a community garden, and I’ve taken the first steps towards forming an initiative to that effect. Reading up on community gardening, I stumbled upon the Dervaes family in Pasadena. Their website, Path to Freedom, is […]

New garden pics are up

Monday, June 26th, 2006

So mosey on over to my gallery. The last picture in the new set of 5 is the front garden… be sure and check out the “before” picture for that one, too. Wow! It’s a jungle out there, folks. I got a hammock! Finally! It’s a bit more colorful than I would have liked, but […]

Bathroom dreamin’

So here’s my first attempt to integrate my garden and regular blog; not bad, if I say so myself. The newest pics’re up in the gallery: Take a peek! The Stella d’Oro daylilies are going crazy. I came this close to ripping them all out last year: they produced hardly any blooms and they just […]

Josh lent me a page of his gallery to do with what I please. -insert evil grin here-. Because nefarious plots of dire nature generally require more planning than a single overnight’s organization will allow, I have limited myself in the mean time to putting up garden pictures. Yay! I’m hoping that this Gallery program […]

New garden pics!

Thursday, June 1st, 2006

I just updated my garden page with ten new pictures: very pretty, if I do say so myself. (The grass makes it look a little wild in back, but oh well, it’s nice in person.) I’d repost all the pictures here to share ’em with y’all, but I’d have to go back and restructure all […]
