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.

i planned to surround my garden picket fence last year with red, white and blue perennial flowers.  this walker's low catmint has been a wonderful selection, as it blooms throughout the season and provides a wealth of beautiful blue flowers.  it complements other blue flowers in the garden, such as the blue allium and blue flax.

since the catmint grows so well, i have divided the bushes a couple of times, and have been able to enjoy bursts of color in several areas along the fence line.  the catmint has required staking in order to keep it within the edged border.  i simply used garden twine and tied it to the fence.
