  • Garden visit yields teas, recipes

    I’m back! I know. It’s a surprise to me as well, but here I am doing what I love to do, writing this column. 

    The sale of our house fell through and we were disappointed; however life does go on and there are reasons for everything. In this process, I have redecorated our house with all of our own things and that is very good.

    In September, we visited the new home of my high school friends in Virginia, then drove further south to Charleston, S.C., where we met my cousin and his wife from California.
