A Potting Shed Christmas

I’ve spent more time decorating my Potting Shed than my house this Christmas season :) Santa came early and gifted me with a ladder to use in my Potting Shed, or rather a Hatherley Lattistep :) To big to be wrapped and go under the tree, it’s standing in as a tree of sorts, (thank…

Bird Watching~ Chickadees

Harvest festivals with serenades, grape stomps, and harvest-to-barrel celebrations are abundant with October’s arrival. With that in mind, I pulled out my grandmother’s Harvest Time by Johnson Brothers~ to enjoy with some wine we purchased during our tasting visits to some NC wineries during September, for…
