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.

strawberry and cream lilies

since late June this year, my lily collection has been blooming.  Asiatic and oriental lilies grace my garden.  i have had several years of no lilies, since the bunnies in and near my garden love to munch the stems before the flowers ever form.  so, i have tried various techniques since 2009 to stop the little rabbits from ruining these beautiful flowers.

i have moved the lilies twice, and finally they are surrounded by my wooden garden fence, along with wire frames to protect them as they grow in the springtime.  they have been wonderful for several weeks now and i am so glad that i have worked to support their growth and beauty.
