The Garden in Late June....and My Critters

Exciting things are happening in the garden these days!

Well....exciting for me, but maybe that's not saying much about me, huh?

Some of My Favorite Summer Cocktails

The days are long and oh-so hot, the nights are sultry....summer is the perfect time for a frosty cold cocktail.

What To Do With All Those Radishes?!

It's that time of year, when the veggie garden finally starts producing, and you are faced with the wonderful yet challenging task of figuring out to do with all that beautiful produce. 

For us up here on the mountain top, right now the garden is giving us lettuce like mad, and radishes up the kazoo!

What do I do with all those radishes?

Healthy Summer Smoothie

I laugh when I hear people talk about the "Lazy Days of Summer."

In what lifetime?

My summer is anything but lazy.

Heaven On The Mountain Top

The garden is an explosion of color these days. 

Every time I walk outside the door, I see something new blooming.

A Celebration of Life and Love

I apologize for my radio silence. 

It's been one of those weeks. 

I feel as if I have barely had time to breathe, never mind write.

Bear Update

I promised you an update on the Bear situation, so here it is. 

He was missing for a few days. I thought, perhaps, that he had moved on, since he didn't find any food around my house.

Sweet Summer Memories

As many of you know, I grew up in New York City. 

But I was one of the lucky ones.

Life Is A Gift...Focus On The Present

As a gardener, I think I am always looking for what's blooming next. What's budding. What's doing well. What didn't work. What did better last year. 

Sometimes I think I look right past what's blooming now.

The Perennial Bed in Mid June

My perennial bed is certainly not a manicured, mulched space. It's a true country garden, a cottage garden of sorts. 

But even a cottage garden needs to be tamed from time to time, or it will soon get out of control.

Life And Love On The Mountain Top

I often share my projects with you, here on my blog. But what you don't see is that while I'm planting flowers and veggies, or cooking up a feast, my sweetie is very often here at my house, working his little butt off. 

He sees things that need to be done and takes it upon himself to tackle the project. 

He's a very, very good sweetie.

My Crooked Little Country Garden

Yesterday I mentioned that one project seems to lead to another....and another....and 50 more. And my list just keeps growing and growing. 

Well, today I'm happy to share one big project that is finally complete!

Bear Update....and a Slice of Life

Our weather has been so bizarre. Not just ours, of course, but all over the globe. 

Global warming? I suppose.

The Battle of The Bear

I've been missing you all and wishing for more time to spend here. 

But life gets in the way sometimes. It's been super busy around here.

Summer Cocktail Party Menu

I haven't hosted a dinner party in a while, so I started planning a date for a get-together. 

As things do, it snowballed into a gathering of about 20.

This Is WAR!!!

Last night we finally got rain. 

A lot of rain. 

My veggie garden was flooded this morning.

Real Life and The Little Things

It truly is the little things, isn't it?

They add up to create a space and a life that makes us happy.
