Save Water

Want to save water but add beauty to your yard? There are many effective ways to lessen the water bill. Here are a couple ideas that are easy to do yourself.




See Ya

One of our fine feathered friends seeing us off! The young eagle has been hanging out in the back yard all summer. Fun to watch. There are so many around here.

Can't believe our summer fun is over already. Time to say, "See ya later," and go home.


Fruits of Labor

Ok, well mostly the fruits of my mom's labor! Our time this summer is coming to a close and we finally got to eat some of the veggies out of the garden. These cucumbers are delicious! Over the next few weeks my mom will be harvesting, canning, and eating up the garden. Too bad she can't ship it to me!





The Garden Grows

This garden is growing like crazy!




More Than Veggies

There's more than just veggies growing in this Alaska garden. Look at these beautiful Orange Lilies! The owl watches over the garden. Pansies are doing well, too!






Model Monday Playhouse

Ever thought of adding a playhouse for the kids? This is a unique twist I found. What a great idea! Just having walls instead of a closed in area. And after the kids grow up and stop using it for a playhouse, it can be transformed into a lounge area, reading cubby, or add an adult table and chairs. Lots of possibilities!




Natural Beauty

This is a Russian Orthodox Church in Ninilchik, Alaska. There are fields and fields of fireweed in late summer. It's a beautiful place to visit and there is so much natural beauty in the area. Did you know that you can make honey out of fireweed? And clover, too! As a kid we made these. Tastes great! You can find an abundance of recipes online.






Color Monday

Adding color adds fun and entertainment to your garden. It's amazing the kind of creativity that is out there. Here's a shot of some great color for warm weather climates. This is sure to make your day year round.




Everyone Enjoys the Growing Season

Almost every time I drive to the market, I get to see this momma and baby grabbing a snack.
