A gardener's work is never done, but even if you let things slide you can still reclaim what you've neglected. I certainly neglected a corner of my garden. It looked awful; scruffy and overgrown with weeds and grass. See how long and luxurious that grass is back behind my grape and trellis?

Lately I’ve been reading and re-reading some… Continue reading My Oldest Friends

Yeah, remember that song, Sister Golden Hair by America? I always loved this line: "I’ve been one poor correspondent, and I’ve been too, too hard to find, but it doesn’t mean you ain’t been on my mind." As the song says, it doesn’t mean I wasn’t thinking about all of you out there, blog… Continue reading It’s So Good To Be Back!
