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

DIY Birdbaths

      Nothing brings birds to your garden quite like a water source. Birdbaths are essential for birds to keep themselves groomed and hydrated, but they can be expensive to purchase! Believe it or not, you probably have the makings of a birdbath in your shed, garage or basement right now! Even if you

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

Signs of Spring at Our Fairfield Home & Garden

Signs of Spring are everywhere now. The winter was a long one and all the spring blooms are about two weeks behind, but they are here! Greening lawns, leaf buds on trees and shrubs and the constant bird activity and song tell me there’s no going back now. My biggest temptation, as usual, is to

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

Winter Decorating At Our Fairfield Home & Garden

December now and time to think of outdoor winter decorations to match the season. I dismantled the fall window boxes, keeping the dried seed pods and flowers for crafting and set the pumpkins and gourds behind the shed for feasting by the squirrels. Cut greens from our property line the base of the new window
