Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

cleanup in the garden today

i spent some time today in the garden doing spring clean-up. i trimmed spent flower blooms from all of my daffodils and hyacinths. i still have many bulbs blooming throughout the yard. it is hard to believe the some of my bulbs have already finished blooming. my tulips are just beginning to open and my iris are starting to form flowers. i fed my bulbs with bulb booster today and used osmocote on my flowers.the viburnum are flowering and the bleeding hearts are just lovely. i planted more daylily, ferns, and hosta yesterday after spending an hour with my friend in her garden. she has been working on her garden for more then twenty years and is dividing plants and sharing them with me. she also shared forget me nots and virginia bluebells. it was a wonderful day.
