The fields around our house are full of spring flowers- fruit trees, daffodils, dandelions, and more. Our cultivated flower garden is a more summer-season one, so there’s not much to look at right now, with the grand exception of the huge Rosemary that sits in the middle of our herb bed. It has been flowering [...]

Since we bought our house and small acreage five years ago, we’ve been gradually working on it, building out the area for the School, adding tanks for our rainwater collection system, and creating a big, wonderful garden.

Here in the Northwest, our local forests have many evergreens, which are beautifully green year-round, along with an abundance of Alders. Alder trees are deciduous, green in the summer and leafless in the winter, without much autumn show in between. As they lose their leaves this time of year, though, I can see that they [...]
