I have been in the garden all day Rita.  My neighbor gave me 10 hosta starts and I was planting a few other things.  Your Lilac is gorgeous!  Mine are just in bud.  Congrats on the guest post.  Will hop over and visit you and Laura!  Happy Easter.

I am pleased as can be to be sharing my "favorite five" garden items with readers today in a blog series feature at Laura Gunn's, "Decor to Adore".  Hurry over to see my tried-and-true, hard-working garden favorites, and tell...

Thank you, +Jann Olson.  The lilac is actually a neighbor's, mine still hasn't bloomed yet (anxious!).  My poor hostas look like wilted lettuce because we had a freeze the other night and they were about 4" tall.  There were too many plants to cover - it's survival of the fittest in my garden and, unfortunately, this year may be a bum year.

Life on the farm sounds wonderful Katie!  Nothing like a delicious coffee cake.  I love it and I don't even drink coffee. lol!  thanks for sharing with SYC.

We had a busy and productive start to our April Vacation and I felt like doing a little baking tonight, so I whipped up this super coffee cake after the kids went to bed.  Our day started with Farm Girl going to Story Hour at...

    I recently had one of those nights in which I just had to have something warm, baked, and sweet. I frantically started searching the cabinets and my cookbooks for a recipe that would work. This particular recipe was adapt...

Great idea!  It's always fun to have a visual to help children do their chores.  Thanks for sharing with SYC.

My 5-year-old daughter has many wonderful qualities.  She is caring, creative, enthusiastic, and loves to spend time with her little sister and pets.  However, she is not a morning person.  At least when she has to get up ear...

Oh my gosh Rita, I had no idea.  I've always heard that the Praying Mantis is such a good insect to have in your garden.  I love Humming birds and will am so glad that I am aware of this now.  Thanks for sharing with SYC.
hugs,
Jann
It's that time of year again here in the eastern part of the US.....the hummingbirds are migrating to our backyards. Perhaps you've already spotted them in your neighborhood, but it's usually mid to late April before they're ...

Very beautiful!  I love the new courtyard!  I am a kind of a throw it in gal.  I love cottage gardening and random things popping up here and there.  I always have a plan in my head, but have never had any help professionally.  Oh I lied, we let someone else install our pergola which was a first.  We are usually do it yourselfers.  Your garden is more formal, but simply gorgeous!  Thanks for sharing it with SYC.

In the spring of 2004 my husband and I embarked on a fairly large renovation of the exterior of our home. Implementing a landscape garden in the lot adjacent to the house was not our primary goal, but it certainly ended up be...

Thank you, Jann.  Although more formal on paper, I have taken every WalMart table plant purchased and every seed offered from friends (and even from stray bird seed!) and found a place for them in my garden, mixing them in and among all the original plantings.  If it were strictly up to me, it would become a lot less formal.  I sometimes feel conflicted because I enjoy a full look and then, all of a sudden, feel it looks too messy & overdone.  Nature usually has its way of taking care of things in that some plants die out, while others flourish.  That's the great thing about any garden - forever changing!   :)

Homemade dressing is the best!  This sounds very yummy.  Thanks for sharing the recipe with SYC.
hugs,
Jann
There was a time when I thought salad dressing had to come in a bottle from the grocery store.  And was really expensive and had a long list of ingredients that I couldn't pronounce.  Eventually the cheap-skate in me surfaced...

Story
Introduction

I'm a mother of 5 married children,   I have 9 darling grand children ranging from age 18 to  1 year old..  They all have such fun and crazy personalities.  They help to keep me young.  My husband is an engineer with a funny personality that shows up at the most unexpected times.  He has most people fooled into thinking that he's a very serious guy.-Not So!  I love the outdoors and love to garden.  Just something about getting my hands into that dirt that I can't explain.  Mother Nature has a hold on me!  Love quilting almost as much as gardening.  Fabrics just seem to call me by name.  Also love decorating my home and thrifting.  If it's chippy, shabby, or rusty, I have instant love.
