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*

What a Fabulous Weekend!

I enjoyed my mornings getting up and riding my bicycle around the neighborhood, and the evening showers with rolling thunder. Lots of much needed rain came into the valley, filling up the rain barrels once more.
The high humidity kept me mostly indoors during the afternoons though, inspiring me to do a little baking. I made tasty raspberry granola bars with jam I had made a while back, also on the menu; vegetable soup to feed a family for months...the house smelled so good. Also, stuffed baked Manicotti with 3 cheeses.
And finally I sorted out my vegetable and herb seedlings and prepped the trays indoors.
I am extremely confident about my garden this season. I look forward to the cooler temps so I can spend some serious time in the garden  :)
