Tea In The Garden

The garden…exactly where I want to be right now as I look outside my window and see snow.  I would  love to have a pretty spot to sit in my garden. It is on the smaller side right now but we have future plans to expand. And then I would love a bench next to a waterfall under a trellis of wisteria. Or a glass greenhouse doubling as a she-shed. A girl can dream, right?

I have been thinking about what I am going to plant this spring and hoping that I can find a way to get better yield. I had my soil tested but the results came back fairly good. Not sure what I need but I know that it could be better. One strawberry a day won’t make a pie.

Do you have any suggestions of natural things to help fertilize my soil? I was thinking of getting some manure this year. I have also heard that chicken feces helps but we won’t be getting chickens for a year or so I need some ideas until then. I would love to hear what works for you.

Creating the Journal Page

This layout is part of my Splashes of Tea Art Journal which happens to be one of my favorite art journals. Because I am obsessed with tea!


Since today is Tea day I am playing along with Elizabeth and I am sharing a picture of my new favorite brew. I received this tea as a Christmas present. If you want something yummy to try you can click on the picture to see it on Amazon. Seriously, it is SO GOOD!!

Happy Tea Day,
