I saw The Mountain Goats at The Gothic this evening, and I am ecstatic to report that it was a great evening of music!

This melodic trio from Durham, North Carolina is best known for their raw sound and literary lyrics. Highly prolific, they have released 17 studio albums since 1991.

On This Day in History - June 15

Blog image

James K. Polk, eleventh President of the United States died on this date in 1849 in Nashville, Tennessee. Polk is best known for an incredibly successful one-term presidency, after which he declined a second term.

Like all Presidents, James Knox Polk was a politician, a businessman, but above all, a human being prone to error like the rest of us. While he is credited with having a successful presidency, his actions during his presidency provoked the Mexican War and perhaps even the Civil War.

Miniature Gardening

Blog image

Whether you call them miniature gardens, tabletop gardens, or fairy gardens these tiny, darling landscapes are beautiful and simple enough for anyone to create. Because they are basically container gardens, they are perfect for any space, any lighting and any conditions!

Many of our local gardening stores have miniature plants and even tiny accessories. When I was last at Rabbit Shadow Farm, they mentioned that they would be introducing their own line of fairy garden furniture this fall. Taking a class at the Denver Botanic Gardens offered by Rabbit Shadow Farms was what first got me started in fairy gardening.

Lest They Be Forgotten

Memorial Day, or Decoration Day, is a national holiday where we remember those that have laid down their lives in service of their country.

Traditionally, people celebrate the lives of these heroes by decorating their graves with flowers or flags and having parades.

Memorial Day Movies

Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for the men and women who have died in service to our nation. Many movies have been filmed about our fallen heroes and their surviving brethren and watching them can help us better understand the circumstances of their lives and keep us from reliving past atrocities.
