Wow, it's been awhile!

In my last entry I talked about possibly moving to a 9 acre farm. That deal fell through but we did move. We bought a 3.5 acre property with a gorgeous old house that needed little for repairs and renovations, unlike the 9 acre place.

Oh, wait, that's not our new home. This is our new home....

We are very happy but things have been very busy with the move. Then, just after getting somewhat settled, I took a new job, working for my new neighbor actually, at a small local newspaper just down the street. So, I've been very busy and not doing much gardening.

Then, at the beginning of the new year, I started writing a gardening article each week for the paper. My very own column! I figured if I was going to sit and write an article here on my computer I might as well start posting them here on my neglected blog.

So, coming soon. A Cracked Pot

Oh my goodness, that is quite possible the cutest house I have ever seen. I love old houses. Good luck with it.

p.s. is the first picture the 9 acre place you were looking at first? It looks quite grand, but I don't think it can approach the dearness of the second one.

p.p.s. I don't normally talk like a grandmother (I feel like I should be blessing someone's heart right about now) but gosh that place is adorable.

Sorry I took so long to get back to you! We just got back from vacation in Florida.

No, the first house was a grand plantation home we toured in Maryland called Mount Harmon.

Thank you as well for the good wishes and compliments!
