We had such a lovely trip spending time with family, experiencing city life and taking a break at our favorite camping spot deep in the forests of Colorado. Look for a second post about the Denver Botanical Gardens very soon!

Bee :)


Many things are growing right outside my door!

I really need to get my camera out there and remember to report back. These last few months have been crazy but I appreciate you stopping by to see what I’ve been up to :)


I’ve been in the garden everyday… Not so much the case with my blog but here, I have some proof!

June Blooms


My love is gone for a few days to visit family in a beautiful part of the country. Though I get to go with him at the end of the summer with my work schedule it wasn’t possible to go this time. I’m sad I won’t be seeing any mountains any time soon but I’m keeping busy picking up my house and garden.

I have many things planted and I’m sure there will be even more done by the time he gets back!

I hope to have lots of beautiful produce and plants to sell in my local Farmer’s Market. So far, I haven’t made much but considering I’ve only sold catnip that grows behind my house and cilantro that popped up all by itself I’m off to a good start.

Here are some snaps of the garden to get us all through until my love (who has my camera) comes home:

Much love to you all! I hope you are not as lonely as I will be this week but you know what they say about distance and the heart. So far it seems to be true and it has honestly only been a few hours… Kind of sad on my part I suppose! If you do happen to get lonely why not strike up some conversation in my comments section or maybe even catch up with some loose ends of your own?

Late Start


As of late, my garden is waking from its long hibernation…

Things are taking off and so I will have more frequent updates soon. I have tiny onions, carrots, potatoes and jalapenos already!

I cannot flipping believe I’ve neglected my lovely blog for almost a month! The garden is coming in nicely. Some plants I grew from seed but after a few mishaps I had to look around my local garden centers, too. I will snap photos very soon but until then check out the awesome blossoming trees I’ve seen!

28 Years Later


The birthday was a success! We had beautiful weather and a delicious lunch at Zombie Burger (well worth the wait!) We didn’t spend much time at the capitol but I got a few snaps. Richard Dawkins was awesome! I adore hearing him talk :)

Check out more photos from my trip at Photographic Novel! I have to save the big uploads for my other blogs until I can afford to get an upgrade for good old blastedgoat. I have junk on this blog dating back to 2008. It is amazing what one can acquire (even online) in six years… We won’t talk about things that I may or may not have posted to the internet during my formative years ;)

Well I’m heading into the big city tomorrow for my twenty-eighth. Richard Dawkins talking in my home state on my birthday… the day is mostly based on that. I want to check out Zombie Burger and walk around the Capitol if we have time. It is supposed to storm so who knows, this year could get off to an interesting start!

I got a greenhouse. I also bought motor oil. Ah, being an adult!

Here are a few final photos from twenty-seven year old me :)

They torn down Lafayette School this week. It has been abandoned for as long as I can remember.
