Central Coast Charm!

Good morning! I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!

Today I wanted to share some inspiration from the central coast! Jon and I enjoyed the weekend in Cambria. The weather was beautiful... it felt like spring!

It was wonderful to be back in the area where we went to college... and met! ♥

I am getting so excited for spring! ♥

Have you ever been to the beautiful central coast? What inspires you to garden?

Backyard Winter Wonderland

Hello fellow garden lovers!

So...apparently there is snow on the ground in 49 states! Read about it here! Palmdale still has snow in the foothills! However, the white blanket covering the backyard has melted.

But here are are few more photos of the recent backyard turned "winter wonderland!" :)

Do you currently have snow on the ground? :)

Winter Gardening: Purple Kale!


Have you been paying much attention to your garden lately? I must say... I haven't been. The cold weather has been keeping me inside.

However, I did manage to plant a purple kale plant about 2 months ago! It has lasted through rain, snow, frost, wind, and ice! :)

Point of story: If you want something growing in your garden in the winter, but don't want anything high maintenance, plant kale! :)

Merlin the Snow Cat!

The other morning, my significant other, Jon, and I came looked out the window to find 4 inches of snow!!!

Yes, we know he is not normal...

It rarely snows in Palmdale... so needless to say, we were very excited!

And so was Merlin!


The last time it snowed was 2 years ago... and it was then we learned that Merlin has a strange affinity for it. What cat loves snow?!?

Most cats would prefer being curled up next to a warm fire. But not Merlin! He stands by the door, begging to me let outside.

So, we let him have his way...

Poor Merlin... he had a tooth removed the other day, hence the missing fur on his neck. 

Please tell me Merlin isn't the only weirdo cat that likes snow? :)
