In the last couple of weeks a friend and then a neighbor (also a friend) mentioned seeing a snake in their garden as if that was an unusual and freaky occurrence. I have another friend, a professional gardener who...
You already know that I’m as crazy about flowers as the bees are but show me a plant with burgundy, yellow, blue, orange, or striped-white foliage—anything other than one of the million shades of green—and I’ll do my darnedest...
There’s so much going on in the June garden my choice of topics is overwhelming. I could share my latest list of impulse purchases, which includes ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius) number three, a moundy-roundy purple-flowered mint-scented tender perennial I’d never...
