Spring Flowers From Cracow

My sister and I share the love of gardening, so we often exchange pictures of our success, or cry over our failures.   

I have to deal with Japanese Beetles, and her worse garden enemy is a pesky Vole. 

Anyway, today we will be enjoying the beauty of her spring flowers. 

It looks like Spring in Cracow is kinder to her flowers, than ours is to mine…:-)

Suburban Spring Flowers

Spring arrived almost a month ago, but you would not know that by looking at my flower garden.  With the cold spells, and even snow during the end of March and beginning of April, these delicate plants are having a hard time to come to a full bloom.

The two unseasonably warm days of over 70 degrees F we recently enjoyed, really had a positive effect on the plants, and helped them open up a little more.

Today I will share a few of my photos I captured of the current blooms.

Farewell To My Summer Garden

Summer has been technically over several weeks ago, but in my garden, summer is just coming to an end.

Fewer flowers are opening up, more and more plants are drying off, and my vegetable garden is not producing new crops…just letting the remaining ones to complete its cycle.

We had few very cold nights already, but today was a gorgeous day; so with the help of my camera, I captured the remaining beauties in my garden.

Exotic Red Beet Salad – Recipe

I use beets in soups, borscht, and salads.

Today I will share a recipe for a delicious red beet salad.

Even if you never were a big fan of red beets, you should give this one a try, and I am sure you will LOVE it.

I had this salad at my friend’s house, and could not believe that red beets were the main ingredient, since all the other flavors added a very unique taste, and texture to this salad.
