Who Is Anastasia?

New Castle, Indiana Zone 5, United States
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.

Question for You

Here's a question for you dear followers and fellow bloggers. This is not about food or gardening, or my usual fluff, but about blogger and blogspot in general. It's a question I've never been able to get a simple answer for.

When someone writes a comment regarding a blog post (on blogspot), is there an easier way to respond to their comment - other than having to go to their blog, find a post, and comment there? In other words, if you comment, and I comment back - you don't get my response, unless you come back to my blog. I will be the first to admit, I am not BLOGLITERATE - as much as I've done here, I don't know that much about the mechanisms of blogging.

I don't want anyone to think I'm rude if I don't answer your comments - so, please, if anyone has an answer - something so logical I've probably missed - PLEASE let me know.

Meanwhile, we're wading in over 2" of rain that fell last night - no garden pics yet this year; it's just a big, nasty jungle in the garden.

I have been baking, and selling muffins and breads at our local farmers' market on Saturdays ... and, Oh!

I almost forgot! I have retired my cupcakes (except for very special occasions, friends & family) - and I am no longer The Cupcake Garden --

BUNS & ROSES is the new (unofficial) name of my (unofficial) business - featuring flavorful quickbreads, muffins and fantasy corsages - More on the Corsages later ... but, I'm sure you'll be pleased!
All the best, have a good day!

The Backyard --Today's Vacation Spot

The Backyard --Today's Vacation Spot
A simple garden meal in the shade. No, it's not my backyard, but it looks identical to the one I grew up with at our home in Queens. Looking for an original pic of it to post soon!
