The First Snow

I was preparing to go to bed last night but my husband called me to the front door – and opened it to see the beautiful snow falling. This morning the skies are white – and so is the ground – and almost everything else. Tomorrow we are visiting our daughter’s family – and some of our other families. We’ll be waiting to see who else saw the snow today. And tomorrow? (more…)

Birds in the Winterberries

We have four  winterberry  bushes. One of the bushes is the papa and doesn’t get any berries. Two of the winterberry bushes have beautiful red berries. Both of  those bushes are kept busy with birds visiting the berries, and I have to say, all the berries were gone in one day. A lot of birds enjoyed themselves tremendously. (more…)

Sheffield Pink

Sheffield Daisies (my version of ‘Pink’)  have pleased me for many years, but this year I waited and waited for the daisies to bloom. Blossoms finally opened just last week! So – I have just learned that they will thrive in dry soil, and well drained.  Well, dry and well drained did not exist this year. Rain, Rain, and Rain! We all suffered, but I have hope for 2024!

Scarlet Winterberries

These scarlet berries sit in front of our house, and thrice more in back of the house where our garden lives with many friends. Although I do not believe that any whitetail deer or snowshoe hare will be enjoying my delicious winterberries,  I am happy to know that 48 species of birds will be very happy to eat those berries.

This is our latest load of Martin’s Farm soil

Ever since we began to live in Greenfield, we began to plant shrubs and lovely plants AND order Martin’s Farm Loam and Compost mix. We had not been living in  our ‘new’ house long, but soon neighbors began telling us about the great ice skating rink in the backyard. The kids made good use of it, and did a lot of skating in the winter. (more…)

Gardening Can Be Murder by Marta McDowell

I am a reader, and a gardener. During the day I have jobs to do, but I always have some time to read when dinner and the news is over. Recently I have been reading Gardening Can Be Murder – How Poisonous Poppies, Sinister Shovels, and Grim Gardens Have Inspired Mystery Writers. This is an amazing book, fascinating, thrilling – and I’ve often met some mysterious characters who surprised me. (more…)
