Welcome to A Garden Variety Blog!

Although my neighbors are all barbarians,
And you, you are a thousand miles away,
There are always two cups on my table.
--Tang Dynasty

I hope you, whomever you are,
will sit down "with" me for tea,
or flavored coffee or spiced cider,
and have a garden variety chat.
Now and then.
I am not so consistant about blogging
as I ought to be.
I *am* consistant about
drinking hot beverage
and the coffee/tea is always on the hob.

Come on in!

Falling Up Pictures

I've been telling friends I would post pictures of the results of "Falling Up" the house. I finally got the house to myself for an afternoon and could keep it fairly clean long enough to get the pictures.

So, welcome to my home!

I will start outside, in front of the house.

Here are the naturally decorated plants.
Two Holly bushes

And a Yew.

Goldenrod at the wood's edge

And today's new yard ornament

Front door
Come on in! This is the entry
The livingroom

This fountain sits on..............................this table.

The diningroom

A close up.
