Blog Anniversary Giveaway


I can’t believe it, physician but this month it will be three years since my first post in April of 2007. Remember those baby rabbits in my herb garden?
I have so much appreciated everyone that follows my blog, cheap and those that take the time to leave such nice comments. For my anniversary, no rx I am giving away a copy of my DVD, “Early America”. I will have a family member pick an email at random. Send your email to, with DVD in the subject. Include your full name and mailing address. I’ll announce the winner this week on my blog.

Spring has finally arrived, and I was looking through my loose leaf notebooks, the ones I have filled with favorite pictures and ideas from magazines. I came across some ideas for growing Spring bulbs indoors.


If you have any old glass bottles, or canning jars, why not use them to sprout your Spring bulbs indoors, kind of like what we do around Christmas time. Maybe use an early enameled pot, just use your imagination. Once in a while, I save a jar, just because I like the glass or the shape of the jar. If you have done that too, why not tie string or wire around the mouth of the jar. Suspend it from the ceiling in front of your kitchen window, and fill it with flowers or just float one on top of the water. Have fun with it. I’m going to to put a couple of bulbs in some early cream bottles. Maybe fill some early jelly jars too with Spring flowers. Look out daffodils, here i come! Isn’t Spring wonderful!!
Happy Day!

    Hi Christe’, So good to hear from you. I am so glad to know that you have enjoyed my blog for such a long time, actually from day one. I love showing photos from my part of the country and I can not wait to do that again, now that the weather have gotten so much better. It’s wonderful knowing that you have learned so much too! That is what I love to hear! I want to start doing more of that soon.
