- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Out in the garden
It would seem that I've been neglecting my blog, I've stopped by a few places but my time when I can is out in the garden these days, perusing seed catalogs , and looking in anticipating for the local nurseries to bring it on with the flowers and vegatables, and especially the herbs.
I have a tiny garden space which we have used over the years as a vegatable garden, the soil is good and so I've designated that as my herb garden. So far Lavender is the only thing occupying the space in the wagon wheel I've placed on the so far. I transplanted that from the square foot garden.
I've purchased Rosemary, and Lemon Verbena. I've ordered a Lemon Rose scented geranium. Have you ever? I had one a few years back and oh my it is a lovely. They come in a variety of flavors. These are considered herbs, and are grown more for their scented leaves than the flowers.
And am looking into Queen Annes Lace, I think I saw some seeds at Walmart. Those are lovely.
I've been reading over the winter and have found an interest in Colonial Garden spaces, with a fond interest in the herb gardens and flowers of Colonial Time.
Until next time...

This is what I hope my wagon wheel will look like this summer. I will have a mixture of herbs and flowers.
