There is Something Ironic about the First Flowers to Bloom in My Garden! After struggling through a winter with record snowfalls, I have been longing for the first signs of life in my gardens!  I have a few plants pushing up through the ground . . .   But the first flowers to actually bloom are [...
This Bird was Just Asking For it!! You know how sometimes someone is just asking for it?  Well today I was sitting in my car waiting for a client when the first mockingbird I have seen this year landed right in front of me and just asked to be photographed.  But wait, I don't have my camera with ...
No Flowers in My Yard Yet, But the Indoor Garden Continues to Cheer Me! People keep asking if I have any flowers in my yard yet.  Thank goodness with yesterday's snow, the answer is "No," but things are starting to poke out of the ground, so hopefully within a week I will have an outdoor plant to...
Here We Snow Again! Okay, so maybe that is not my old Mini Cooper on the winding snowy roads of Connecticut.  This is actually a billboard on the side of a building in New York City!  Our family friend HeyMagpie had to take this picture as her family also had a Mini that is now being missed.

Friday Fotos - A Slice of Heaven Do you have a favorite place on earth?  I have to say that I love warm climates (like Hawaii and Florida) and dry hot climates (I honestly love to visit Death Valley), but surprisingly one of my favorite spots on earth . . .     is Flam Norway   It was not the lea...
If April Showers Bring May Flowers, What do March Monsoons Bring? Without a doubt, 2011 will go down in history as a year of weather!  Here we are only 69 days into the year, and it has already been one of records in Connecticut--record wind, record snow, record rain.  If March "Came in Like a Li...
My Garden is Blooming (Well, my Inside Garden, Anyway) My outside garden still has a ways to go before anything will start blooming there, but yesterday morning I happened to notice that my clivia had the beginnings of a bloom!  On closer inspection I discovered that there are actually three bloo...
