Doing the local thing in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. I love to garden, cook, talk about life and times and ponder how lucky I am to live in this magical place.

The garden bench
Come on over and sit a spell on my bench surrounded by mint and cosmos. I love sitting here and pondering life. It smells heavenly and watching the bees bumble around - those big fuzzy bees, little bees, regular sized bees, even watching a yellow jacket is fun... And when I find a lady bug or an elusive (and weird) baby ladybug, I am delighted. They are all so fun to watch. I wish we had praying mantis' here in the Black Hills. We used to have a lot of these handsome bugs in Sacramento. At one time, I had three in various parts of the garden that I'd go out everyday and watch. Until one of them ate the other. That wasn't very cute. Alas...
