Playing with fall hydrangeas and a (very) blue chair

read

 One of the reasons I love fall so much is because it’s time to harvest hydrangeas once again. We have two fairly big bushes, so we’re never at a loss for new stock. Except if you leave them on the bush a little too long after they get crispy… whoops! I lost one good batch […]

The first cozy fireplace fire of the season

read

Anyone else still have a real wood burning fireplace? I am SO glad we do. And I was even more giddy when my brother Les called about some firewood he wanted to send my way.  This garden shed is where we store firewood. But I’ll be the first to admit, I’ve never loved smacking through […]

Outdoor pics and cute cats… with an iPhone

cats

I have a little story of joy for you today. I’d been getting some visits from someone’s cat lately. I knew this cat wasn’t a stray, for it was very well fed, healthy, spotlessly clean and wore a cute pink collar. She even smelled pretty. She’d come visit me on our patio while I was […]
