Glamour 1944

I just love the way actresses looked in the 40's. So put together, up swept do and ruby red lipstick...sigh! I happen to have a few of my mothers old movie mags and I just had to give this lady a try. Alexis Smith was a well known actress in the 40's and this cover shot is from Screenland February 1944 edition. Note the huge corsage! Wow! I may have to try more of these.

Spring Cleaning

How wonderful it is to finally see the temps creeping up again. I can almost hear the seeds cracking open and small green shoots preparing to break the surface of the soil.
I have a small garden, mostly ornamental, but each year small or not I put my heart and soul into it. This year I will be keeping an online diary of the garden in this blog and plan on posting pictures at least 3-4 times a week. I do hope that other gardeners will feel inclined to join me and post a comment or two on occasion. Here's to a new year and new plant adventures!
