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.

spring bleeding hearts

splendid in both my colonial garden and my backyard shade garden, bleeding hearts fill the early season spaces with beautiful sturdy pink and white hearts.  both species of bleeding hearts are fascinating to see emerge quickly over a week when warmer temperatures heat up the soil.

although these plants will die back after the spring season, the area can be filled with goat's beard, astilbe, or even ferns in a shade garden.  i have surrounded my plants with these and they seem to compliment the space well creating another season of blooms.
