How lovely. Now I can get comments! I will play around and find more things to delight me.
Josh and I went to the Patch to take pictures yesterday. The weather has been so bright and sunny and warm that it’s hard to believe that there will most likely be several more freezes before winter is over; it’s only March, after all. I gathered up about a dozen daffodils to make a centerpiece […]
I got my latest package from Majestic Mountain Sage today, which included cocoa butter and lip balm tubes, among other goodies. And I chose to make this recipe, delighted by the fact that for the very first time I had every ingredient it called for: beeswax, shea butter, cocoa butter, almond oil, vitamin E, and […]
It’s here! Things are surging up from the ground, pushing out new leaves, and the first flowers are out and showing themselves off! And I’m lucky enough to have a husband who’s a great photographer and will happily document any little twig or leaf or flower I point to and gibber about. (He’s cute, too. […]
This winter the weather has been out of control; first, a week of 72 degree days in January, and then a week of below-freezing temperatures in late March. It is so dry that I flinch every time I touch anything at all and breathe a sigh of relief when I don’t get static-shocked. And my […]

Until the next one, that is. Behold the latest of my flora-besotten pinings: the climbing rose Zephirine Drouhin and a cedar arbor to let […]
The peas have germinated. All five hundred and fifty two of them. And not only germinated, either. Their roots are probably near halfan inch long, and getting longer as I watch and worry. Because of course there was a snowstorm on the day I had pegged for planting the things. And not only a snowstorm, […]
I’ve been getting weekly 1/2 gallon deliveries of raw goat’s milk for a few weeks now, trying my hand at making cheese. For some reason I can’t stand to drink goat’s milk, but I just love the flavor of chevre, soft white goat cheese. In Europe, especially France, little rounds of the stuff, toasted and […]
