Blowing in the Wind

These beautiful tall grasses rock back and forth in the wind – mesmerizing and calming to watch on a windy day.  Though they don’t sport fabulously colored flowers, they are still one of my favorite elements in the garden.

The tall grasses are just mesmerizing to watch in the wind.

Stillwater, The Birthplace of Minnesota

A Stillwater, Minnesota icon

I would like to introduce Stillwater, Minnesota- my home for nearly seven years now.  It is a town filled with character (and characters).  Built on the banks of the St. Croix River which flows into the mighty Mississippi,  the town was established in the 1840s by fur traders and loggers.
