This little blog of mine.....

Thanks for stopping by this little blog.  Here you'll find me talking about all the things I'm currently obsessed with....mainly gardening in north Texas zone 7b, thrift store shopping, baking,  crocheting and researching family history....exciting stuff!  The ladies in my banner are the lovely Harris girls, circa 1930s.  That's Mae (my grandma),  Pauline, Jenny June, and Hazel Marie - all born and raised in Lincoln County, Oklahoma....true red dirt girls!

I started lasagna gardening last March, a little skeptical about the process - but after I had put in my first 30' of flowerbed and I planted this rosebush.  Here below it was a mere 2 1/2' tall.  

 By September this little rosebush that I planted on May 16, has grown to over 6' just 4 short months. Now i'm a believer in lasagna gardening!

Here it is this first week of February as north Texas is layered in ice and snow.  We haven't been above freezing since Tuesday.  Tomorrow (Friday) another round of snow is coming...i'm ready for flip flops!

Stay warm gardeners....Spring is just around the corner!
