In a vase on Monday

Pansies are blooming in a wide variety of colors and sizes.  I have Majestic Giant, Sorbet and Penny from Johnny’s Selected Seeds. And do you spy the first calendula bloom? 

I’ve been inspired by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden blog.  She hosts a weekly gathering of “Flowers in a Vase” every Monday.

“I sing you songs of the rainbows and whisper of the joy that is mine.”   

Ready, Get Set, GROW!

I’m spending the 2017 growing season focusing on flowers!  The growing season is short where I live in Central Maine and I’m giving some of my seedlings a head start! These are Sorbet Pansies from Johnny’s Selected Seeds.


I’ve started this blog because I got tired of the tone on Facebook.  But I do want to share the joy I find in the garden. My husband Harry and I spend a lot of time in our garden.  It’s a big part of our lives.

This year I’ve got some BIG  flower garden plans.  In addition to the various flower gardens around our land, I’m creating a 20×30 Court Garden for our Green Love Renaissance. It will be all in containers and set up a few days before the event.

Join me in a joyful journey with pansies, petunias, zinnia, lilacs and hilltop blooms through this growing season.  Walk with me through the fields and woodlands as they wake this spring and go back to sleep for the winter. Let us celebrate this season of flower power.
