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.

in keeping with my central theme of pink, white and blue flowers in my colonial garden is veronica.  this plant is commonly named speedwell and has a wonderful spot in the garden at the corner of one of the front beds.  the beautiful blue spikes gradually flower over a few days once the spikes have formed.

this compact plant is bright blue and has grown in size since last year.  although only about 12 inches tall, the flowers are striking and would be a nice addition to floral arrangements. speedwell is a hardy perennial that has been a reliable complement to the garden.
