spicy, sexy, wild

Life's crazy. Make moments that matter. That's the revision I made to my normal tagline of "Life's Busy. Make moments that matter." It's just crazy. Stir crazy. I'm crazy. Here's what's exciting in my life... "Spicy, sexy, wild".  I saw those words on a bottle of lotion describing the scent while I was in a family member's dark, old,

Nostalgia. It is perhaps one of the greatest gifts in life for those of us who have a few years added on to our youthful days. The memories, tastes and feelings of past feel good moments that still live on in your mind are pure gold. Life in the good old days...ahhhhh. It was all so simple then. Naturally.

I find heirloom gardening to be addictive for so many reasons. I’ve only just begun my heirloom gardening adventures in full force so I admit that I am a newbie with lots to learn, but the nostalgia that the stories from the seeds tell is probably my most favorite part. My happy memories of spending time at the country homesteads of my grandparents and great-grandparents are moments that I want to create for myself, my family and you and their gardens were always front and center. Irises, peonies, lilac trees, roses, Lily of the Valley and sweet peas, oh my!

It’s rare that I am an “all or nothing” gal, so my garden plans focus on heirloom and open-pollinated garden goodies, but there is always room for something that doesn’t fit that mold if it catches my eye.

Come along and get your hands dirty with me!

“It’ll be fun”, she says.
