I should not be surprised because this happens every year: Blink and it’s Fourth of July. How we got halfway through 2016 and to what we consider the mid-point of summer, I have no idea, but here we are. Summer can slow down already.

The floribunda rose I’ve been growing in a pot for a few years is looking so great this year. I couldn’t be happier with the show it’s putting on.

Some recipes for a few beauty treatments using what you’re growing in your garden.

Something about the Fourth of July makes me want to eat berries in every possible form. Blueberry bars fit the bill.
