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.

A Fox Visitor

We have had a fox visit us this last week. The unusual thing is that it comes around during the day. I always thought of a fox as nocturnal. It has become very comfortable coming right up on the deck, eating dead stink bugs. Yesterday I took these photos of our regular visitor.

Notice his bushy tail? It's almost as long as the rest of his body.

Frost Forecast


The threat of frost tonight took me out to the vegetable garden to harvest what will not survive a frost. I didn't pull the pepper plants, but did collect everything that was of an edible size. I was pleased to find some snow peas to gather as well for dinner tonight.

Return from China

I've been gone for the last two weeks visiting my daughter in China. I'm busy getting photos ready to share on my Shutterfly account but here are a few teasers.
