Looking forward to participating and sharing my recipes and stories with all of you. I love cooking and gardening and will be sharing my tales as my patio garden starts to take shape. I already have potatoes that are about 6 inches high, sugar snap peas sprouting that I planted from seed and beautiful rose buds that will be making their appearance within a month. Next up, the lilac bush ready to burst into flowers any day now. LOVE this time of year!
