The Season Has Begun

This year, I couldn’t wait to start gardening. As soon as the Christmas decorations were taken down and packed away at the beginning of January, I started my winter sowing. I’d been collecting clear plastic containers for some time so I drilled holes at the bottom of said containers, drilled holes on the lids, filled […]

Christmas Memories and January Chores

It’s been a while since writing. That’s because Christmas was such a busy time. My son and daughter-in-law arrived on the 23rd loaded down with gifts and even groceries. I couldn’t believe it. After getting them settled, we just hunkered down and enjoyed each others company. They only stayed 3 days. It was over way […]

Snow Storm

It’s about two weeks to Christmas. This weekend has been nothing but changes in the weather from mild temperatures and rain to snow to ice pellets, to sleet. Oh boy. We got plowed out but there was still a lot of shovelling to do to clear the walkways and just to tidy things up. Charlie […]

The Winter Burn

There are Ralph and Charlie sitting and watching the fire while downing a couple of sandwiches and beer. I thought they looked so cute sitting on the log. Meanwhile, I thought I’d take a picture of my Christmas decorations. What fun. I had the arrangements on pedestals but the winds are just too intense at […]

Happy Times

Let me tell you what happened the other day. I walked outside and on the back porch were several stacked flower trays. On the top tray lay, neatly packed, seedling pots – lots of them. I thought Charlie had found them while clearing the lower garden but when asked he said he thought I’d found […]

Funny how that happens. Before you know it, the time for pretty blossoms is over, the air gets colder, the leaves drop faster and faster and then, one morning you look outside and the ground and car are covered in frost. Even though the days still rise above the freezing mark, you know that won’t […]

Bamboo Shoot

We’re having a bit of a snowstorm, you might say. Hell, I stepped out of the porch and sunk up to my knees in snow but I just had to take some pictures.

Mostly, I wanted to show you my bamboo. Although the leaves have changed colour they are still on the bush. Go figure. […]

About My Chervil And Geraniums

For all you readers out there that have never heard of chervil, it is a herb similar in appearance to the parsley but different in taste. If you take a bit of the leaf and chew it, you will notice a licorice taste. The French use it a lot in their cooking.

It is the […]

Chervil, The Rare Herb

I love using Chervil as a herb for chicken or eggs, etc. It is said to be a rare herb used mainly in French cooking. Let’s face it, I use it in everything. But for the last little while, I haven’t been able to find it anywhere. I’ve been to specialty shops and the big […]
