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.

fall dried herbal wreath

here is my first attempt at using some of my dried flowers and herbs from my garden this year.  i must admit that it was quite exciting to be able to make something from the dried bunches that have been preserved in my garage.

i used a grapevine wreath base and some florist wire to attach the bunches as i worked around the circle form.  i used lavender, baby's breath, sage, garlic chives, thyme, and yarrow.

these dried bundles of herbs have been in the garage since august, and seem to be just perfect for forming into a wreath.  they crumbled very little and were able to bend along the wreath frame nicely.
