tangled garden



I've written about Tangled Garden in beautiful Grand Pré, Nova Scotia before. In fact, I gushed and swooned and took a zillion pictures.

So I was delighted and ecstatic tonight to see them featured in the March 2013 issue of Martha Stewart Living! (It's kind of like any time that Canada is mentioned on American TV. Only even closer to home!)

It's one of those places that everything just feels right.  It's a feast for the senses. Everything is made and grown right there, and is so delicious! The spring onion jelly was a particular favourite of mine. It's a place that couldn't be much closer to everything that I love. Unless there were some herb soaps. Hmm... maybe I should get in touch!

There's a lovely short video about Beverly McClare, the woman behind the garden, here. I'm so delighted for her, and hoping that the piece will bring lots of people to visit my beautiful, beautiful province. (This seems to be a running theme here lately.)
In other brief news, we're all feeling much better, thanks! Just the occasional cough, nose blow, and sniffle. And a bit of fever hanging on to conquer over the weekend. And I have grand plans for the weekend - my mom will be watching the boys tomorrow, and I have plans for picture taking and Gooey Cinnamon Square making (from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook). Sounds very, very good to me.

I hope that your weekend is full of loveliness, too!

    1. Thanks, Kristina! I'm feeling the same way. Can't wait to get my hands in the soil - I dreamed about compost last night. :)

    1. Oh, lovely! I didn't even get to see the garden, as it was closed for maintenance the couple times I've visited - since I was that excited about the store, I think I might explode, walking through the garden!
