Sneak Peek at the New Living Room

I have been working on this room for a month... 
and I just had to share a little bit with you!

All American Selections 2015 Introductions and Tuesday Garden Party 2/24/15

Welcome to this week's #tuesdaygardenparty!
I am still covered in about three inches of snow and it is -4 as I type this.
But I am happy to say, Spring is less than a month away.

This week I was thrilled to receive my 2015 All American Selections Seeds!
 Creative Country Mom's Garden is one of the chosen media growers to evaluate the new introductions each year from All American Selections!  Each spring I get the wonderful seeds to trial in my Indiana garden.  I see how they do, photograph them then at the end of the growing year... I evaluate them and let them know how they do in my garden.
I send them back my ratings, comments and links to my posts about the specific plants.
I am honored to be included in this esteemed group of growers and display gardens.
Of course I love to grow from seed, and love to share gardening in any way.

New Vintage Style Dress Form

Hello my dears... hope you are enjoying a warm weekend by the fire...
We have had severe weather and ice and snow here in Indiana.
We have been snowed in for over a week now!

Today I am sharing this sweet corner of my office and my new vintage style dress form!

Snowed In!

No school today!
We are covered in over 6 inches of snow...
Thought you might enjoy a peek around our views from the windows!

Late Winter Garden Care in the Midwest and TGP 2/17/15

This week's Tuesday Garden Party host is Brooke of Creative Country Mom's Garden...

As I write to you today, we are covered in a blanket of snow... about 4 inches and it is still falling.  But I am in full on "Spring Gardening" mode....  I can feel it, just around the corner.... the garden will be waking up and telling me it is time to get back to work.

An Eagle Sighting... My Valentine's Day Suprise

It is in the teens and blowing snow here at the lake.
 Not bird watching weather to say the least.
But here on Valentine's Day an full grown eagle came to visit our backyard.
  No we are not in some National Forest, but SW Indiana where
eagle sightings are rare.  This is our second visit by this eagle this winter.
The first time he never landed just circled the lake.
