Welcome to the Frog Hollow Farm blog! I've been blogging since January 2010 and have switched from Blogger to Word Press, but I'm back to Blogger because, for me, it's easier to use. My husband and I live on a little farm in Northwest New Jersey. We have some chickens and a very large vegetable garden with asparagus and raspberries, and rows and rows of sunflowers, snapdragons and zinnias. Traveling, entertaining, gardening, spending time with family, studying Italian, blogging and reading keep us busy and happy. With all of this going on, moving towards a simpler life seems almost impossible but it's definitely a daily goal.

We have an old wooden barrel in front of our garage that seems to have become the annual home of a beautiful columbine plant for several years now..
Here's a close-up of the flowers, a little past their prime maybe but still dainty and pretty. The plant just keeps getting bigger every year!
It always takes me a minute or so to remember the name of this flower for some reason. I love it when volunteers find a favorite place to make their appearance and bloom year after year.
