So, I've been saving these pictures to post for awhile. I got new planters for the front of my house for my birthday, and we replaced the old ones. They were so rotten that they fell apart when my husband tried to pick them up. I love the new ones, although if it was a little bit warmer I think the plants would be doing better...

Front Walk this Spring: New Planters and Blooming Flowers:
Finally - I have been trying to catch a picture of this bird in our newly cleaned bird bath for several days - (ut I have little patience with the slowly sneaking up and not scaring the poor creature part of photography - I always move too fast and then trip) So my husband snapped this one for me... I'm not sure what kind of bird this is, but it's pretty, and it sure likes the bird bath!
Gardening Adventures from the North started in March 2008 as an attempt to track and share my gardening experiences in Northern BC. My garden is a zone 3b, although more and more I am seeing plants hardy to zones 4 or 5 overwinter here. I am interested in sustainable gardening practices, shade gardening, seed starting and plant propagation (of which I have had little success). Hopefully as this blog evolves it will include our interior and exterior home renovations, and my experiences canning and preserving my garden delicacies.
