More Snow, a Dog’s Haircut, and Too Much Baking

Posted by mrssmythe on April 25, 2020 in Baking, Critters, Seasons, Week in Review |

Spring continues to prove elusive here in western Massachusetts. We’ve had snow twice since my last post. Granted, the second time, it was simultaneously sunny. So strange.

Somehow, I’ve ended up with a Dog Garden. It wasn’t meant to be anything of the sort. Back in the spring, I had plans for a series of raised beds where I could grow herbs and flowers. I was going to use the unclaimed spot in our back yard that used to house an above ground pool […]
