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.

july lily garden

this year my lilies are blooming for the first time.  i planted about forty lilies during the summer of 2008 dreaming of a lily garden for 2009.  a bunny nibbled all the lilies one dark night last summer, and therefore, i had no summer blooms last year.  even this summer, i experienced some lily loss one night, by surprise, when a few of my lilies had again been nibbled.  however, this July has been so wonderful to see my strawberries and cream lily garden in bloom.  i have had oriental and Asiatic lilies in bloom. also, i had stargazer lilies in bloom and have enjoyed every minute.  they have bloomed over a period of weeks.
