Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Finally; a Safe Herbicide!

We finally found a product this weekend that satisfies our need to weed less but be kind to the environment. It is called 'Concern'. It's a corn gluten based herbicide that performs similarly to Preen, but without the chemicals. I am so excited about this product! It's absolutely safe for the environment, animals and kids (unless you are allergic to corn). Our cat Posie, actually thought that the bag we were storing in the garage was cat food...she ripped it open and tried to eat a bit. What a relief to know that it won't harm her. I used to feel so guilty when I saw the birds eating out of our 'Preened' garden. Not any more! This product costs about the same as 'Preen'. It doesn't last quite as long, but our growing season is not all that long; and I'm willing to pay a little extra for the peace of mind.
