We have Pure Glory Today!

We woke up to a beautiful Winter Wonderland scene Saturday morning. I really enjoyed getting outside and was thrilled that our cats, Floki and Zoe, were up for an outing in the snow, too. Here are some images from our morning (after Allan and I shovelled snow). Vlog Edition: I was glad that I was…

FOTD: 12.05.19 ~ Truly Deer Resistant ~ Poppy

Since our property is so “raw” right now, I had thrown down some wildflower seeds in the spring and a whole bunch of poppies sprouted up in an array of beautiful colors. The Deerski Family thought they were pretty, as well, and didn’t eat them so I’m adding this flower to my Truly Deer Resistant…

FOTD: 11.26.19 ~ Truly Deer Resistant ~ False Indigo
