In the Garden….A Look Back at Spring & Summer

I wanted to share with you some pictures I took over the Spring and Summer.

Spring and Summer are my favorite times of the year.

Spring especially.

I love Fall too but not much for Winter.

I’m not much for the cold and all the snow.

Though I admit the snow is quite beautiful.

Driving in the snow is the worst. So not looking forward to it. Seems nobody knows what they are doing anymore.

But, Spring and Summer are gone.

Fall is here and soon it will be Winter.

Soon it will be Christmas too.

In The Garden…..Peppers & A Tomato


Hey there! Today I want to share with you my peppers. Now these were not started from seed but were bought last month at a home improvement store. In my attempt to learn more about growing vegetables I thought I would cover my bases. That way I’d have something to work with in case the seedlings didn’t make it. Not only did I buy peppers but tomatoes and cucumbers too. I share about them in future posts. Continue reading “In The Garden…..Peppers & A Tomato”
