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.

floral arrangements from the garden

one of the most rewarding aspects of gardening has to be cutting flowers for indoor table arrangements.  this year, i have had several weeks of pink and white lilies for my kitchen table meals.  these spectacular flowers are both large and dramatic.  the varieties of strawberry and cream lilies that are growing in my garden have emerged over a period of four weeks contributing to a magnificent display for my table.

i can't help but compare my flowers to those that Martha sells on flowers.com for more than fifty dollars an arrangement.  since the bunnies were kept away this year from the delicious tasting leaves and plants, i have had an amazing season of growth.

during the cold winter months each year in midland, i have looked out at my white snow covered garden and imagined what will come forth the next springtime.  i could have never imagined how beautiful these blooms have been this year, and i am truly amazed at their beauty as they emerge from the ground.
