I'm a Canadian now residing in Sunny Arizona since 2002. Although I've been a city girl all of my life, I've always loved the country and the laid back life it offers. My love of the Outdoors, Animals,and Gardening comes from my mom Cecile, who loved her home in the country, but sadly passed away in 2005. I promised her I would grow a garden in her name, And I finally did, five years later. One of my best memories of her is how much she loved her garden. The glow on her face when she would show me something new, always creating a life with things she loved. She loved all animals. She taught me simplicity, to enjoy the small things, and see beauty in everything. Today I find myself doing the same things she did in her garden and in life. This blog was created to keep track of my projects and adventures. They may not all be successes, but my goal is to remain unintimidated by whatever engages my curiosity. I want to share this adventure with those who can appreciate the small things, the trial and errors, the simplicity in it all, but mostly,what my mom knew how to do best,just have FUN! *This blog is dedicated to her*

The hottest days of the year have arrived, the garden beds, empty.
This is good.
A break. Time for indoor projects.
Also, a time to revise mistakes done in the garden, in life.
Renew the soil. Renew my soul.
A time to sit back and reflect on what’s in my best interest… a time to cleanse.
The older I get the more I am becoming my mother. The secluded person who found joy in little things, the person who adored her time alone in the country; away from people.
I was truly blessed to have built solid friendships in my life. I’ve had to say Farewell many times too, the saddest part of growing up.
I wish to focus on what’s important to me now. My animals, my home, my garden, my well being…sometimes even my sanity.
I’ve been feeling a great need for renewal. Time is slipping me by, now more than ever I feel the need to see some positive changes in my life :)
