Fighting A Garden Battle

Fighting A Garden Battle We seem to be fighting a garden battle, and I’m sad to say it’s winning.  If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you might remember that a couple months ago, most of our seedlings got blown away in a storm (if you missed it, you can find that post here).  Then a month ago, we had a snow storm that ruined the rest of our seedlings.  We thought we were safe transplanting the seedlings outside after Mother’s Day, but a very late Spring snow storm changed…

More Than Just Father’s Day

More Than Just Father’s Day When I think of fathers, I picture the quiet steady men in the background who are always there.  Even after children have grown up and started their own lives, fathers still keep watch and are always ready to help, love, and provide any assistance needed.  Fathers remain fathers forever.  I like to think of this holiday as more than just Father’s Day.  It’s a way to honor the steadfast men who are selfless, kind, loving, and ever present.  They are true heroes in the eyes of…

How To Dry Peonies

How To Dry Peonies Whenever I see peonies, I always think of my grandmother because she liked to grow them in her yard.  When we purchased our home two years ago, we were lucky that somebody had already planted peonies in our yard.  Now every Spring we have fresh cut flowers that we can display around our home.  Unfortunately, beautiful peonies have a very short growing season.  They usually peak the middle or end of Spring and only last a few short weeks.  One way to preserve them and make them…
