Gardening – stepping outside, putting our hands in the dirt, muddying our boots and the delight when the seeds actually sprout! :) I have dabbled in gardening since my late twenties having witnessed the beauty and mental rejuvenation brought into our lives as my mother’s garden, grand and created from scratch – simply a pasture waiting for her attention – over the duration of 40+ years brought and brings comfort for our family, friends during times of everyday life and celebrations. However, it wasn’t until I found and purchased my home – Le Papillon – on the sunny side of Bend, Oregon, I began to garden in earnest.

In the posts below, discover what I have learned, glimpses and tours of my own small garden – more a potàger than organized beds and sections – and what I do throughout the year, learning as I go and finding great peace and contentment every time.
