Christmas 2022

Another year… I am a new grandmother, and a dog mom again to our new puppy. Christmas takes on new meaning.

I do contemplate blogging again. We shall see.

Wishing anyone reading this a wonderful holiday season and happiest of new years!

Christmas 2020

A quiet Christmas. Wreath made of oranges from my grove. Happiest of New Year!


Back in May, I started spending time “Covid” gardening. To my delight, I happened on some tiny Monarch caterpillars on milkweed I had planted a few years back. I ended up spending several months rearing/releasing them back into my garden. What a joyful event it was in these crazy times!

I continue to garden, and have a newfound appreciation for butterflies, and other wildlife in my garden.

Managing to post once a year… Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
