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.

winter greens from the garden

for my front porch this year, i was able to use a variety of collected evergreen branches along with red berries and red twig dogwood for my large decorative pot.

in addition, a smaller basket was placed in front of the pot with an additional collection of greens and holly.

by using a variety of greens, the varying texture of the needles provides interest and shape to the arrangement.  other ideas for arrangements include using large branches from a tree secured in the pot, with evergreen boughs placed at the base of the pot along with pine cones.

by using natural materials from the garden, decorating the porch for the holidays is both easy and beautiful.
