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.

forget me nots

this spring my garden borders were filled with forget me nots.  a gardening friend shared many plants with me last year, and i have been thrilled to enjoy these flowers in particular.  some gardeners may find them too difficult to manage, but i have large border areas that needed to be filled with flowers, such as these low growing and long lasting forget me nots. they have lovely blue flowers and are a wonderful border ground cover.

i enjoyed them tremendously, and have encouraged them to spread into thicker flower borders. So, i almost can't wait until next year to see how they have grown.  in one year, they did so very well in my zone 5 garden.
