Hopalong Hollow....

Hopalong Hollow, where the Blueberries grow sweet, and the moss feels soft beneath your feet.

Well, what can I say? This has been a surreal several weeks in this country, and in our world. You can really appreciate your freedom when you've lost it, albeit temporarily

I am thankful that, for us, staying in place is quite normal. We live in the country, outside a tiny town and our farm is vast and the air is fresh and there is plenty of work to do around here.
Nevertheless, May cannot come soon enough, lets get our country moving

In this video, I am scavenging free plants, and cooking DELICIOUS Lemon curd cookies for today's Spring Tea.


  1. I was recently thinking about your videos, making a hot cup of tea and cinnamon toast for a nice sit down to watch. Thank you!
    Stay well & safe!

  2. I recently discovered you and love your videos and all. Your calm voice is so wonderful. I watch your videos in the evening to just let my mind go to a happier place. Thanks so much.

  3. Hello Jeri from NY- I just love your blog and videos-so nice for relaxing and also inspiring me! Yes, I have heard of egg and olive sandwiches. My grandmother, who passed away at 80 years old in 1977, made them for us when I was a kid. I thought they were just awful then but now they hit the spot!!! Might make some later! Stay healthy!

    1. My parents were from New YOrk and both grew up with the egg and olive... I wonder if it's a New York thing? I love it.

  4. Did you say lemon curd cookies!!!! Oh yum! I love lemon everything. Your garden is such a happy spot:-)

  5. Mmmm, lemon curd. Never made it but like anything lemon. Thanks for sharing

  6. Lemon curd looks delicious and I will make some. the way you served it up looks so pretty on the plate. Thank you as always for sharing recipes and showing how you serve and decorate your table.

  7. Lovely video of your never ending gardens, Jeri. I especially love the steps on your slope. The elements you choose are practical and eye catching. Your Easter Tea is so pretty with such yummy goodies served on the beautiful Kew garden china!

  8. The cookies with the lemon curd & raspberries were just beautiful. Your afternoon tea was lovely.

  9. What a peaceful blog! Love the textured background.

  10. Just found your youtube this week. So inspiring and so restful. As said above, it's good to watch in the evening with a glass of wine or cup of tea. Thank you!


Please do leave a word or two, we SO like to hear from you!
