In A Summer Garden

August, the time of waking to early light and birdsong. Warm breezes enjoyed from a shady chair after garden-tending.  The aroma of a barbeque on the grill wafts across the way. And fireflies and cicada choruses are signaling the end of the day. Now the sturdier summer plants that can take the heat and dry have their

Garden Ladders

Looking through pictures of my past and present gardens, I saw a theme forming ~ Garden Ladders! I haven’t met an old ladder I didn’t love and have put lots of them to use as garden accents. Old ladders make a great trellis for vines such as clematis and moonflowers. You can add vintage gardening

Winter Birds ~ Our Fairfield Home & Garden

  During the cold winter months, and especially when it snows, I keep the birdfeeders filled. Snapping pictures of our winged visitors is pretty tricky with my little pocket-sized camera. I do the best I can photographing them through the windows and from the front porch swing. This winter I placed birdfeeders in my front
