FaLL DaYs..Gathering from the GaRdeNs

I love hydrangeas and lavender...they are so pretty together
...these grown in my garden

The eggplants are hanging on...frost suspected Sat. morn..I will have to pick on Friday..

My herb pickins for today..before the rain sets in..thai basil..thyme..purple leaf sage and a bucket of fresh picked hydrangeas and fragrant lavender

The last of the fall oyster mushrooms...please bring more mother nature

A final rose for the season..if only they could keep blooming..this one has 10 waiting to pop..the frost hopefully won't get them

A simple glad on its last bloom

A HaLLo WyTch...kindly offered at my etsy site..My WiCKeD BesT

Yes...ALL..we have our own tombstone belonging to Sarah..wife of John..how remarkable is that? She soon will have her own plot so I can treat her to flowers everyday..

Here she is YYEEAAA my published Queen of Crows in the spring issue of PRiMs magazine..I feel so honored and lucky to be actually listed in the index...she has a vintage crepe paper hand stamped skirt with little crowns all over..clay hearts ....french ribbon...and the silliest legs...

its oh so cold outside today...brr

Sunday January 16,2011
Where has time gone..for all the ones who said they would be eating healthy by now..we are 16 DAYS into the month already..and I am dreaming about gardening already..in fact I think my boss is about ready to swat me in the head because I asked her last week how soon we would be getting roses in the Greenhouse..ha I just had to post a pic of the gazebo during early summer..makes my mouth water..for just green foilage..

EaRLy LoVe ToKeN..wouldn't it be a bomb to receive one of these???

Isn't this an amazing Valentine..a simple hand made puzzle purse...this early form of love token would be hand written and painted with watercolour accents..folded to form a square...always seems to be a little diddy of a poem..quite corney..but oh so sincere in the early days..hard to believe it is not so worn and torn..I found this little pic in my favs..I was in all day..on my Sunday off from work..

It is so cold today..the snow makes a crunchy sound while walking..I just came in from taking care of all the animals..and Miss Mary Poppins..my Americauna Hen has laid me another wonderful egg..I can only hope that Martha will be laying soon also..actually I cannot believe she is even laying since it was about 6 degrees this morning.
