Photo of a fallen robin’s egg from a Aurea Cypress in the yard… Tis a shame, but life goes on.
Photo: Please stop snowing…
My gardens can’t take it anymore…

My Garden: An anticipation post… This photo was taken May 9th, 2011 of my front yard walkway.
I have “Basket of Gold" alyssum, candytuft, creeping phlox, mixed herbs [thyme, oregano, and sage], a fern-foliaged tansy, daylily foliage, and various tulips blooming.
I seriously can’t wait for spring.
In my garden: the Russian Red Kale is still going strong, despite there being a buncha snow on the ground.
Must make more soup! Mmmm…
Tonight’s dinner - I made some Korean salt beef (Jang Jorim), carrot, spinach, bean sprouts and egg.
Forced bulbs - hyacinth.
One of many that are starting to bloom on my kitchen windowsill. They smell fantastic!
Red Russian Kale - harvested yesterday, Dec. 19th 2012.
Photo taken last night before it was thrown into a bubbling pot of delicious winter soup. Yum yum.
(The photo has not been altered, winter chill makes kale gorgeous!)
Photo: At the Lake Mohawk NJ German winter festival. Drank Glühwein, I am a happy girl… [not-pictured is the giant bag of awesome kettle popcorn we got. Yuuumm!]
Photo: Rescued plant from the snow outside, and turned it into a bonsai indoor plant. It’s a Pelagonium “Vancouver Centennial”, a fancy leaf Geranium.
Fall perfection. Took the dogs on a walk Saturday through Allamuchy State Park, NJ. October 20th, 2012. #fall #nature #photography #woods #trees
Breakfast from the Garden: Saute of onion, potato, red russian kale, arugula, new zealand spinach, yellow & green beans, golden yellow snap pea, jalapeno, and garlic chives. Served with a paprika & black pepper egg in a wrap. My breakfasts are usually like this. ♥
Photo Session: Here’s a mini tour of my gardens! It’s a peek into what I do when I’m not chained to my computer table arting! hee hee hee.
Sadly the backyard is controlled by my two dogs, so the only available space is in the front. It’s a nice mixture of annual/perennial flowers, shrubs, herbs, fruit/berries and vegetables. There are zones to my garden, the front is primarily a vegetable garden. The sides and back are all viewing areas where I have flowers planted. And my side yards are my shade gardens. I plant for nature - all are either nectar-giving for the various pollinators or shed seeds for the birds to feast on in the fall. The vegetables are for me. ♥
