In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

It's this time of year when I'm just over winter. I actually don't mind the snow until....oooohhhh..... December 26, then I'm ready for Spring!
Sometimes when I really can't stand it anymore, I grow stuff. It's my 'thing'. I don't know what I'm going to do this year without my potting shed. But I'll figure it out. Right now, I'm forcing branches. Lot's of them. See the tiny little buds starting to pop from the forsythia!
And a couple of weeks ago I found a dried pepper from a plant I bought on THIS garden trip. I bought it at Prairie Trail Herb Farm, which was up for sale last year. Don't know what ever happened to it. If I were younger, I'd have an herb farm here...where I'm living now. Anyway, I dropped the seeds in a pot with some soil and I'm growing peppers. They are not edible. They are ornamental. I'll keep you posted on the progress. I am craving gardening.
I'm 59. A wife, a beekeeper, a gardener, and a crafter. I like to read; novels and old cookbooks with history in them are my favorites. I've been married for 21 years to a loving, hard-working man, who makes me laugh. We have a little dog that was found dumped in a park, and given to us. He is a boy, but has a girl name. Sorry Dixie. (could be uni-sex I suppose)
We have decided to take a journey together and build a new home on some land we purchased a few years ago. We are building the home ourselves. In 2016 we moved to the main level of our new home. I've created "The House on Hilltop Farm" blog, so I can record the house building journey. The Bee Lady from Hilltop Farm is about everything else going on in my life.
Nice to meet you.
So, I showed my niece my new (old) camper and she said, "I love the name coral belle. Coral reminds me of the ocean and the color of the camper reminds me of the color of the water in the ocean." (Out of the mouths of babes!)
