Benvenuto Oliver… Welcome Oliver…

It seems that the best way to heal the broken heart after losing a precious pet is to get another one right away.  Jim wanted a new puppy,  Priscilla loved the idea,  and I wanted to wait a bit.  Jim won,  and now we have this precious little "Ollie" to make us happy,  and fill the hole that was left when we lost our sweet Coco.  We have a special little spot for her in the garden,  which she loved …we will never forget Coco,  but this adorable " Shaded English Cream Doxie" helps ease the pain…

Ciao Coco… Goodbye Coco…

Today we had to say goodbye to our  sweet coco… so difficult to do after almost 16 years.  So precious,  we will miss her so much…  Love you Coco!

Giardino Primaverile… Springtime Garden…

Springtime seems to be the perfect  time to make some major changes in the garden… Plants that are not thriving,  and  tree roots inhibiting growth of other plants,  all needing to be removed,   making room for new plantings. After the initial landscaping 11 years ago,  the sprinklers and the lighting  need work  I'm a little overwhelmed… Planning carefully … the ultimate goal is to use favorite perennials for permanent plantings and less maintenance … Really excited about the changes!

Piatti Dimenticati… Forgotten Dishes…

Sometimes I go blank and have no idea what to make for dinner… then I remember… favorites that I hadn't made for a while.  Gnocchi A La Romana… and Pasta Con Tonno…

Preparando Per Pasqua… Getting Ready For Easter…

There is something so sweet about Easter… The bunnies, the flowers,  the pastel colors… adorable,    they all inspire me to make something sweet and lovely.  I haven't been decorating for holidays as much as I used to like to,  but,  definitely enough to be in the spirit of things.  Egg decorating,  always a must for Easter,   and  always a little different each year.  Making cookies with Giu Giu has been fun… This year I am enjoying garden shades for my eggs,  and decor…along with some pastels… of course…
