Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

New Faces for the First Day of Summer


Easter Lilies


A new day lily. I planted this last year and can't remember if it bloomed or its name.


Another new one. It did bloom for bloom day but its so beautiful I had to show it off again.

One of my favorites that came to me from my old house by way of my Dad who had it growing at his house and gave me a division to plant here. This one grows outside Dan's study window.



Blooming parsley.


Purple coneflowers that the ground hog seems to love. I had to increase the height of the chicken wire enclosure because the ground hog had eaten the leaves and I didn't want it to get the flowers next.
