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.

lavender and baby's breath from the garden

one of my favorite fragrances in the garden is lavender hidcote.  i arranged several plants in a circle surrounding my sundial in the garden.  the lavender is in full bloom and i couldn't resist cutting some for my sun porch. my gyposphila paniculata is in bloom as well and compliments the bouquet.

my gyposphila is a perennial and has tripled in size in three years.  it produces a wonderful display of tender white flowers and this year, i plan to dry them for the first time.

both lavender hidcote and lavender munstead grow well in my garden producing two different colors of bloom and wonderful fragrance.
