For a few years now we have enjoyed the early July serviceberries, also called saskatoon berries, that ripen on many trees used locally in city landscaping. The summer I was pregnant with Maus, a friend of ours came for dinner with a handful of berries he had picked on his way [...]
Oh my! It has been a while since I have visited this space, and there really isn’t any reason for my absence. I have countless “draft posts” but none seemed to actually make it as far as the “publish” button, and many have since been deleted…a post entitled “The garden – early June” [...]
I finally took our winter wreath down this week…with the way winter has been hanging on this year I don’t even feel that late! Our front door is definitely in need of a little TLC. Our ancient storm door, with torn screen, and time-worn wooden house door are, without doubt, [...]
