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.

This little corydalis plant has found a home in a small rock wall on our front walkway. I don't know if you've ever planted corydalis, but they are prolific reseeders. We planted blue and yellow corydalis plants about 15 years ago. The blue never came back but these little yellow ones fill in so many spaces in the front of the house. The leaves are very dainty and light, they fill in between other plants so beautifully. And, they are easy to pull out if you think they're a bit out of control.
We're winding down after a full weekend of shopping for perenniels and annuals at some wonderful nurseries in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Yesterday was the shopping day (after we had the rug people out to measure the office area for a new rug) - today was the planting day.
