Talking to my two favorite guys, Pete and Walter, owners of Zabrene Scapes Landscaping, the other day. They are ready for Spring, and I hope that you are too!
I have been spending a lot of time looking at all the different early vegetable seeds for our Spring garden these past few days. I think I am more of a dreamer than an actual doer.
Once upon a time, there was a whole world of tiny miniature fairies and their animal friends in a land far, far away. As time went on, these magical fairies decided they wanted to spread their joy throughout Earth, and the art of Fairy Gardening began.
There simply is nothing like picking a fresh tomato from your garden, and dinner is served. The funny thing is that I actually hated tomatoes and would never eat one till about 4 years ago.
My husband and I have seen more and more American Bald Eagles getting closer and closer to where we live. Driving down the driveway, one of these majestic birds flew right in front of my windshield.
It is said that “familiarity breeds contempt.” I think contempt is a strong word. We do crave things that are new. But most of us dine on the familiar or “comfort food” most of the time. It’s the same with plants.
Finally, after 41 years of marriage, children, and grandchildren, I had a blowout cookie decorating day. Now it is not that I don’t bake cookies, the problem is they end up eaten before we can save them for a grand event.
The other day I decided to try to make a video of just how to make a Behnke Bow. Hours later, I figured out that no one actually makes a bow like we were all taught.
If you are stuck at home, you may as well feed the birds. We have had several feeders up for the last year. We are on a modest suburban lot with some tall trees so we have good habitat for birds.
What is a grave blanket? A good question. Growing up, I never gave graves much thought. Since all the older relatives lived in Germany, there was no cause to visit any graves. Then my grandparents passed away....
For years Behnke Nurseries was proud to carry these beautiful ornaments by Egyptian Museum Glass. Now they are available to you on our online gift shop.
Thanksgiving is this week. It will be a different one for my family as I am sure it will be for many of you. We all have had to make adjustments in our lives. This will be the first one in my life that will be just the two of us.
