War of Roses – Victory! by Lady Jane Guay DECEMBER 31, 2017

      I came in with guns blazing. Twenty five acres, suddenly at my fingertips, to tame to my heart’s desire. A vegetable garden here, a lily pad there, hedge trimming here, shrub pruning there… In just over six years the lessons seem and feel infinite, but yet, each one gives me more courage… Continue reading War of Roses – Victory! by Lady Jane Guay DECEMBER 31, 2017

You would see streams of children who were on either side of the streets in various costumes; a lot of their get-ups were homemade. The children carried their little sacks.

June Bugs, Fireflies and Alien Ant Farms by Garden Girl Dawn-Jane Guay

    This spring seemed to zoom right by. To my embarrassment, although it could happen today (lol!), we have yet to plant our corn, squash and melons. Also, it appears we have fallen off the tomato sucker wagon this year… Again… Besides all that, my newest lesson in gardening is that ants, yes, ANTS… Continue reading June Bugs, Fireflies and Alien Ant Farms by Garden Girl Dawn-Jane Guay
