Mid October

By Jennifer Elders | October 19, 2018

It is mid October. What????? How did THAT happen?????  Well, nevertheless, here it is. Maples and a few other trees and bushes have been turning beautiful colors with leaves falling to the ground.  So pretty.  That means its getting closer to the winter months. I’m waiting for the cold weather to arrive which I think…

This is the time of year to enjoy delicious Chanterelle mushrooms.  If you are lucky enough to know someone who hunts for them and shares with you, then that’s a bonus!!!  Unless of course you enjoy the hunting AND devouring the forest treasure.  And you can also buy them as well. Win win, either way…

Fall Clean up in the garden…..

By Jennifer Elders | September 18, 2018

Ok, just so you know, I realize the above picture does not look like summer is over, but….the flower garden is holding up it’s white flag….It has been a struggle, trying to decide whether to hang on or give up.  Mother nature is signaling that it’s time to go to bed. 🙁    Some of…

Hollyhocks, Borage, and Erica……

By Jennifer Elders | September 15, 2018

About two years ago, I drove by a house that caught my attention. I immediately pulled over and looked longingly at its charm. Loved the house color and more importantly, the picket fence and hollyhocks that grew in front of it. Yellow hollyhocks. I’d never seen yellow ones. A few weeks later, I purposely drove…

Lazy Sunday….

Just thoughts…….

By Jennifer Elders | September 7, 2018

As you may be able to tell from my recent posts, when it comes time to relax we either find ourselves on the deck or in the front yard.  Both are enjoyable for different reasons and sometimes we have a hard time choosing which place to be!  Its even more delightful when someone comes by…

About Me

Hi, I'm Jennifer. So glad you stopped by the website!!  I love cooking, gardening, and photography and this is a place where I can bring it all together to share with you.
I live in a beautiful area called Lake Quinault in the Olympic Rain forest. I'm married and have four children who were all raised here.
I'm always on the lookout for a good photo whether it be flowers, food, family, or the scenic area in which I live.  So many things, so little time!
I'm looking forward to you stopping by, and me finding more and more to share with you ♥
