Nature Walk

"After a long day, I steal a few minutes outside with my camera. All alone. [With children all around me.] Even though I don't live in a cabin in the woods on a lake, I can find peace in nature right here, in the middle of the city, in the neighborhood, in the garden, barefoot on the grass, among the daisies and the bumblebees."

I'm joining Elisa for her garden party today. I'd be happy to see you there.

Organic Gardening

Since accidentally destroying some of my roses by using weed killer near them, I have returned to not using chemicals. However, I spend a lot of time in the spring removing unwanted grass and weeds by hand from our small garden. Last year, I purchased compost at Costco for one of our garden beds. Brendan recently told me that the plants in that bed are looking great. After watching some of this video, I think that I know why.
