Happiness is Where you find it……..

Who knew that a couple of grapevine reindeer that light up would be my favorite thing of the season?? I always wanted these – the classy ones that look pretty in the daytime as well as at night. And now they are here in my front yard. Thanks to my husband for hooking up the electrical and attaching all the parts 🙂 reindeer

Ice Carving Festival!

One of the best things about cold weather is the annual ice carving festival here. The theme was ‘Wonders of the World”. Check out the creativity of these folks! I especially enjoy looking at out the tools they use to work with.

Winter’s Last Breath




YAY!! The Bare Root Room is open!!


One of the pleasures of Spring is getting ready for planting! And a yearly trip to Jung Seeds is a fun trek. On the way we were pelted with snow/sleet!! And there was even a snowplow turning up a pretty impressive plume as we went by. Who would have thought it??  jung1

STILL waiting for Spring……..

So yesterday we went out to Jung Seeds in Randolph and it was SNOWING and SLEETING like crazy. Woke up this morning to more of the same. Will we ever get a taste of sunshine?  Thought I would share a picture of my LazyCat Sophie. She is like a little velveteen kitty. 15 years old and with a smile. Yes, she smiles!!

Winter Doldrums

So Christmas and New Years have come and gone….. it’s too early for the garden catalogs and dreaming of summer. Cruise wear is starting to pop up and trying on a swimsuit is NOT fun with pasty white legs and a few extra pounds. Days are short and nights are C-O-L-D!!  You know the feeling. It’s harder then ever to get out of bed and when you do you might be feeling cranky and bored. I am not going to give you any tips on how to cope, sometimes it’s enough to just wallow in it for a while and then move on. So what’s your favorite winter pastime? I like to read, curled up with tea and a good book. Or work in my studio (gee, I do that at ALL times of the year)  At the very least I like to look at winter scenes….. photos and paintings. And wait…… for Spring to come.

Summer Vacation – Iceland!

We spent some time in Iceland recently and i cannot tell you how stunning the country is. I wasn’t really sure what to expect but I had looked at LOTS of brochures and been on the internet for hours planning it all out. We knew we were looking for adventure and figured we would focus on volcanoes, waterfalls, geysers and glaciers. They certainly have so much to offer in the way of outdoor activity!  So I bought a new pair of hiking boots, grabbed my backpack out of the closet and off we went!  Here are just a few of the things we saw….
