Spring Planting

Our freeze date guideline for planting spring & summer annuals is April 15th~ I’ve been ready for the bloom, enjoying violas that will tolerate  cold temperatures~ Patience is not my forte  so I’m getting a jump-start  in my seed box in my Potting Shed. Although not patient enough to plant from seed :) Wishing you Happy…

Hopping Up & Down the Bunny Trail

 The weather, meteorologically-speaking,  has been Hopping Up and Down the Bunny Trail ~ Unpredictable with some sunny days in the 60’s,  cold & rainy days in the 20’s & 30’s, followed by blustery days with wind advisories~  fortunately for us, no March snow.

Blue married with shades of rust and brown seemed like an unlikely Thanksgiving color combination but Mother Nature, seemed to give her stamp of approval with the water reflecting the blue sky, along with the…

Mini Pumpkin Pies and a Blooming Can

Mini Pumpkin Pies are portion control bites~ Quick & Easy to make with a package of refrigerated pie crusts!  You need a 4-inch round cookie cutter (or bowl as a template) and a muffin tin. One box of 2 pie crusts gives you enough dough for 12 mini pies with pastry leaves (rerolling the scraps).  My fall piecrust cutters…
