Who Is Anastasia?

- When I was 55, I decided to embrace the things I love and hold precious and dear - regardless of anyone else's thoughts and opinion. I am a folk artist who loves flowers - my own flowers, grown by me. I love good, hearty, exotic foods, and I love to prepare them myself. I love the secret garden situated in my backyard, regardless of how junky it gets. No longer able to afford a vacation, this will have to be it for the time being. In the winter months, I still enjoy it. Anyway, here I am sharing my art, favorite recipes, cocktails, gardening tips, and just my usual vents and bantering. After all, I'm old enough to say whatever the heck I want to now ... Oh, the two pictures below are NOT of my garden, although the one with the pink French doors looks very much like the backyard I grew up with. I am searching for pictures of that wonderful place and will post soon.

Tootsie calls it Fertilizer Friday; I call it Glory Morning Friday - especially in August, when the Morning Glories are in bloom, the Blackeyed Susans have stretched to six feet, and sprawl around like godesses ... and, on an old ladder there's Wave Petunias, Mandevilla, dark Ipomea (ornamental sweet potato vine) finally spread their glory - Thank you, Tootsie for the fertilizing suggestion!
I'd invite you to take a stroll with me through my weird little paradise, but you could lose your way ... Talk to ya soon!
