Welcome to Forsythia Hill

I'm very fortunate to live in scenic Virginia where many trees and shrubs dot the hillsides.  This is our lovely view from our back porch where I do most of my reading during the warmer months.  I'm a research freak when it comes to plants, having many books on hand to do just that!
My husband, myself, and six pets recently moved to this area after living in Southwest Virginia for 20 years in my family home built in 1932.  It was one of the saddest days of my life to move but nothing is "forever" - new paths can be forged and old memories saved.  I've turned a new leaf which has allowed me to return to my love of nature, growing plants, and photographing anything that appears in my garden.  

Forsythia is a tough plant that can be found in nearly every "old" garden in the South.  It is a plant that reminds me of my family home and also encircles our new home with masses of blooms in the Spring.  It dots the roadway into our neighborhood and is such a wonderful vibrant welcome to Spring. 
A perfect plant to welcome you to my blog!

I hope you will follow my blog each day and possibly discover something NEW.  I promise to keep it short and sweet. My postings in general will encompass nature, pets, money saving tips, and events.  

Watch my blog to see when my newest venture opens,
Items will be listed on my blog once the shop is up and running.

  6. You are really lucky! So many wonderful things to do there!! I'd forgotten what it's like to live in civilization. Let's see what's going on here this weekend. Some of the choices: a gospel jam, bingo night at the Moose Lodge, a charity car wash, a tractor pull, and an anger management class. I think I'll go to the anger management class!
